A Roman nummus of Tetricus I or II, c. AD 260-273. The obverse is very worn, only a wreath remains visible and the positioning of which suggests that this was originally situated on a head facing to the right. The obverse inscription is illegible. The reverse shows Victoria walking with a wreath. There is an object just behind the shoulder that could be the palm, although the image is too worn to tell. The letter 'I' is situated to the right of the head. The mintmark is illegible.
