Extremely rare! AE4 of Galla Placidia Augusta (421-450 AD), Rome mint, Roman Empire (RIC X 2109)

DN GALLA PLA-CIDIA P F AVG, Diademed and draped bust right / SALVS RE-IPVBLICE, cross, T in the left field, mintmark RM in exergue.  Rome mint. Struck circa AD 425-435. RIC X 2109.

Extremely nice coin, showing the entire obverse legend and the entire legend on the reverse. The coins of Galla Placidia with the Salus reverse are actually rarer than her coins with a "cross" reverse. I could not find a single coin of this type offered for a public sale in recent years.

Aelia Galla Placidia (392 – 27 November 450), daughter of the Roman Emperor Theodosius I, was the Regent for Emperor Valentinian III from 423 until his majority in 437, and a major force in Roman politics for most of her life. She was consort to Ataulf, King of the Goths from 414-415 until his death, and Empress consort to Constantius III from 417-422 until his death.
