Constantius facing right, blundered partial inscriptions / Emperor standing, holding two standards, corrupt SMTS? in exergue. Imitating Thessalonica. 20mm, 1.5 grams (large but thin), very nice for these, brownish patina. Minted ca.350-352. Found in Germany.

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.
