VALENTINIAN III AV GOLD SOLIDUS

RIC 2014, Depeyrot 46/1, 21.4mm, 4.46 grams, Very Fine, some minor marks, full weight, but shallow file mark @3-4:00 (perhaps to test gold), ROME mint

Obverse: D N PLA VALENTI NIANVS P F AVG around rosette-diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust of Valentinian to right

Reverse: Valentinian standing facing, holding long cross in right hand and Victory on globe in left, right foot on head of human-headed coiled serpent, VICTORI A AVGGG around, R M across fields, CONOB in exergue

Interesting Imperial type, from the Rome mint with a lovely matte like tone and complete legends. A decent afforable example.
