Jovian �3 20mm. 363-364 AD. Pearl-diademed, draped & cuirassed bust right / VOT V MVLT X, four lines in wreath, ASISC in ex. LRBC 1267. VF.
Jovian was the captain of the imperian guard under Julian II and was proclaimed emperor when Julian died in 363 AD. A pathetic character, he was a feeble leader at best, and is said to have been accidentally asphyxiated by a charcoal brazier in his bedroom just a few months later.
