There might be some other Roman about, keep looking!

Roman Coin , Bronze. 374-78AD

Obverse: Bust of Valens, right, pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed.

Lettering: D N VALENS P F AVG


Reverse: Victory advancing left, holding wreath in right hand and palm with left hand.
Mint and officina mark in exergue; sometimes, marks in fields.

Lettering:
SECVRITAS REIPUBLICAE (Security of the State)

Keep Hunting :D

This Emperor has the highest number of coins of this type found in Britain, although it could be Gratian or Valentinian I. Generally, Valens has a 4-1 ratio over the other types, the portrait leans heavily to Valens too. All good stuff!
