GALLIENUS.   AD 253-268

Obverse: GALLIENVS AVG
Radiate head, right.

Reverse: PAX AVG
Pax standing l. holding olive-branch and transverse scepter.


Mint City: Rome. Struck AD 260-68

Reference: RIC 256. Goebl 351e

A striking portrait. Though the coin is missing about 1/4 it is still is 3.44g., interestingly. Silvering remnants. The exergue is lacking, therefore attribution is tentative.
The missing areas aren't easily explainable.  It is doubtful that it was somehow broken, as the cut is too rough.  Perhaps it was minted on an already broken blank. Intriguing, at any rate.
