Hi Burp

If you cant get a definite ID
If you give me the at least 3 readable letters from the odverse or reverse I can give you the Date the mint, full Discription and a bit of the History and maybe send you a pic of another one like it .
Computers what would we do without them  Grin

Cheers Phil
On the Obverse it looks like ONPLLOCO with a right facing bearded bust then more writing on the right side of the obverse ending in AUG.
I'm totally useless when it comes to coins!
Thanks mate

Just been told who it is thanks Phil & he only ruled for 8 months!

Procopius, 28 September 365 - 27 May 366 A.D.

Procopius was a general under Julian II. After the accession of Valens, Procopius led a rebellion at Constantinopolis while the emperor was in Syria. Procopius' forces were quickly defeated and he was executed shortly after.

I'd never even heard of Procopius before!

Cheers Phil
Tell you what mate, I didn't realise that he ruled for such a little length of time.
To be quite honest with you I'd never heard of him before!

Lovely coin Botty - I'm still waiting for my first silver Roman!

I would be careful with it if I was you, as it looks like the hairline crack that starts at 11 oclock runs across it.

Great find - keep up the good work
