Romano-British Empire, Carausius, Mid 286 - Spring or Early Summer 293 A.D.
The obverse and reverse legends and types are known from the Camulodunum mint with C in the exergue and S - P across the reverse field (RIC V 224, Web Carausius 281, SRCV IV 13580). This variety, perhaps unofficial, is unpublished in the many references examined by Forum. We also could not find an example online. This is the only example known to Forum.

This coin is dedicated to the goddess Fides for her good quality of preserving the public peace by keeping the army true to its allegiance.
