its a 4th century coin from the house of constantine.  can you get a clearer pic of the head please ... i think i can read CONSTAN .... .but not sure if its just an S  or TINIUS after it.

i'm sure someone more expert will be along to add more to the ID.

cheers and well found

To add to Chef's comments.

They're both technically called 'follis' although the Licinus (and it is Licinus Major / the first) is a reduced follis, and the Constantius II (not to be confused with his grandfather) is an AE 4 (smallest bronze type).

The Licinius has the reverse 'GEN POP ROM' and was struck in London.

Strangely enough I had an almost identical Constantius II delivered this morning (as part of a batch) even down to the leaf / heart motif on the reverse.
