Rare barbarous AE3 imitation of a "soldier spearing horseman" of Constantius Gallus or Julian II, ca.351-358 AD, German find.

Bare bust of Constantius Gallus or Julian II facing right, blundered inscriptions / Soldier spearing horseman, garbled inscriptions. Imitating an AE3 of Constantius II, the mintmark is imitating Siscia. 19mm, 2.8 grams, very nice for these, brown patina. Minted ca.351-358. Found in Germany. Rare. 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.
