An extremely corroded and worn copper alloy Roman nummus, possibly issued by the House of Constantine (313-364 AD). Although both legends are missing due to the poor state of the coin, it is possible to identify a laureate head facing right on the obverse and a standing figure advancing left on the reverse. There seems to be a horizontal and curved line under the figure on the reverse, which could possibly a ship or perhaps a shield. Mint Unknown.
