Germanic Tribes, Pseudo-Imperial Coinage, c. 425 - 450 A.D.
This type was minted by and used as currency by Germanic tribes outside the Roman Empire. It copied Roman type issued under Theodosius I. While official late Roman imperial bronze coinage was sometimes a bit crude, the emperor's hairstyle was never quite like this.
ME92815. Bronze barbarous imitative, for the Roman prototype see: RIC X Theodosius II 440 ff., SRCV V 21231 ff. (official, half centenionalis, various mints, 425 - 435 A.D.), EF, crude imitative style, small ragged flan, encrustation, tribal mint, weight 0.586g, maximum diameter 9.7mm, die axis 0o, c. 425 - 450 A.D.; obverse D N THEODOSIVS P F AVG (or similar, almost entirely off flan, likely blundered), diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust right; reverse cross in wreath, wreath closed at the bottom with IIXII (or similar) on exergue line; $80.00
