Roman Empire, Constantius II, Light Miliarense

The miliarense was a silver coin of the late Roman Empire. It circulated in two varieties – as a light miliarense of about 4.6 grams (0.16 ounces) and as a heavy miliarense of about 5.5 grams (0.19 ounces).

The light miliarense was issued from about 344 and was somewhat more frequent than the heavy type. This piece was issued by Constantius II (337-361); it shows the portrait of the emperor on the obverse and a warrior with a lance and an armor on the reverse.
