Reverse: CONCOR-DIA AVG Empress standing facing, holding arms at breast; Star in left field; CONS in exergue. References: RIC -, LRBC – (See RIC 426 for similar, but empress enthroned) Unpublished, Extremely Rare. Size: 15mm, 1.16g. Professional Numismatic Notes: Aelia Galla Placidia was the daughter of Theodosius I and was briefly the "wife" of the emperor Constantius III. Her presence on coinage is incredibly limited, especially in bronze denominations. The most abundant reverse type for Placidia is that of a cross. This reverse is particularly interesting because it does not appear in RIC or LRBC. A similar type, with the same reverse legends, exergue and field mark is recorded with Placidia enthroned, however she is depicted standing in this type. Pleasing Good VF grade and excellent portrait!
