Galeria Valeria, daughter of Diocletian, wife of co-Emporer Galeria, Cyzicus mint, Turkey 308-309 AD
Bust: Right facing, diademed, no crescent.

Reverse: VENERIVICTRICI
Type: Venus standing left, holding apple and raising skirt.

Mint = MKV = Cyzicus. Turkey.

Mark = triangle
308 -309 AD. (according to Aorta)

She doesn't come across as a great beauty in other busts, but I think she's rather beautiful in this version. She has a sad expression in her eyes, as if she can see what's coming for her...
