Galla Placidia, Augusta, 421 - 7 November 450 A.D.
The crude Victory reverse type with the officina letter left is typical of coins struck in the west, mostly at Rome, during the long reign of Valentinian III (and to a very small degree, by Johannes and Majorian). Although the tight flan cuts off the obverse legend, since the bust has, in our opinion, female features, an elaborate headdress and a sizable pearl-necklace, we believe the coin was struck by Valentinian III in the name of his mother, Galla Placidia.
