Bequest of David P. Harris ('46), 2020
The obverse features a bust of the emperor in right profile. The reverse features the chi rho with the letters alpha and omega, to the left and right. While the chi rho is properly oriented, the inscription along the edge appears to be backwards. This suggests the coin may be an ancient imitation; see Pierre Bastien, "Imitations of Roman Bronze Coins, A.D. 318-363," Museum Notes (American Numismatic Society) 30 (1985), pp. 143-177.
