    Description

    Unlisted Valentinian I Siliqua

    Valentinian I, Western Roman Empire (AD 364-375). AR siliqua (18mm, 1.89 gm, 6h). NGC AU 5/5 - 4/5. Siscia, ca. November AD 375. D N VALENTINI-ANVS P F AVG, pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed bust of Valentinian I right, seen from front / VOT / XV / MVL / XX, legend in four lines within laurel wreath with elaborate base and terminating in large medallion decorated with six pointed star; SISCPS below. RIC IX -, cf. 19c (Valentinian II).

    From the Morris Collection

    The VOT XV series is listed in RIC as minted in AD 375-378 for Valens, Gratian and Valentinian II. The legend break on the obverse is indicative of Valentinian I, even though otherwise is identical to Valentinian II of this period. As such, this is likely the last Siscian issue struck for Valentinian I and none were known when RIC IX was written in 1933.
