I bought this as unidentified, late 4th century AD. Is this then from the constantinian dynasty?

Looks like Constans or Constantinian.

Dear Zeeuwsepiep and Board,

Your siliqua was heavily clipped, but to me, the emperor looks like Gratian.  Compare the bust with this one from Aquileia:

The coin has no extergue, but thankfully the style of Roma strongly suggests the mint at Trier.

Hope this helps.


Best regards,

Clipped siliquae like that are usually British finds; if I remember right, the clipping appears to have been done in the 5th Century, but that could be wrong.

98.5% of the 14,000 odd siliquae in the Hoxne hoard were clipped to some degree. Clipping was mostly confined to Britain but not entirely. Andrew Burnett has argued that clipping took place in the reign of Constantine III in 409.
