A worn and clipped or broken copper alloy Roman barabrous radiate dating to the period AD 275-285. The coin appear appears to be a copy from the period of the Tetrarchy (probably Tetricus I, AD 271-274). The obverse image is quite a good rendition, however the reverse is jumbled and the depiction is hard to make out.
