Romano-British Empire, Carausius, Mid 286 - Spring or Early Summer 293 A.D.
This is the only specimen of this type known to Forum. We did not find another online or in the many references examined. The type must have been struck during a very short period after the mintmark was changed from S - C / C to S - P / C but before the reverse legends were changed to the plural ending AVGGG.
