Barbarous imitation... possibly of Arcadius (inventory of the arcade). But wait for other folks who's wheelhouse this is in.

Here's some of my barbarian coinage:

Not being familiar with this type of coinage, it seems to me that my coin does not seem to have the radiate bust typical of the barbarous types from this period. Does that mean it is potentially something else or is the radiate bust not always present?

But it would fit an Arcadius. Even the official issues were dreadful.

Is there a reference to look at online to figure out the type? I've looked at Wildwinds and a few others but haven't been able to match the visible legends and type.
