Hi,

Not Helena but purports to be Ael Eudoxia and looks very suspicious on first sight. Not overly familiar with the later period bronze coinage though. Probably utilising a reverse type only intended for tremesis and siliqua.

Regards,

Mauseus

You are right, Mauseus. I was suggested by seller's description and carelessly read "AEL..." as "HEL..."

So it is imitation of extremely rare heavy miliarense. RIC X ARCADIUS 46

Modern fake similar in style to other fakes of the same era.

Modern fake with modern dies, overstruck on an ancient coin with a patina.
