Bare bust of Constantius right, blundered partial inscriptions / Soldier spearing horseman, garbled inscriptions. Imitating an AE3 of Constantius II. 13mm, 1.4 grams, very nice for these, greenish patina. Minted ca.354-358. Found in Germany, fairly nice for these, with an excellent portrait.
Overstruck on an older issue?
Barbarous coins were struck because of the coinage shortage (and for other reasons) in roughly the same time period as the originals. They probably saw only local circulation and the usage of the FEL TEMP RAPARATIO imitations did not extend beyond 358 AD, when the "soldier spearing horseman" type was discontinued.
