It looks like a Late Roman Period coin, but was struck by Ermanaric (296-374)? The retrograde inscr. reads "M A nR I C", Small at 14mm and a couple of grams-a Germanic Denarius? Ermanaric has been compared to being the Alexander the Great of the Goths... is this coin an Ermanaric issue? Any help is appreciated!

My first thought is Nabataea in Arabia. I'm not aware of a Gothic coinage of the type you suggest.

Interesting, but I think that The Nabateans used a different alphabet?

OP compared to the legends (Nabataean variant of Aramaic, I believe) from two Rabbell II drachms.
