Next is of Claudius II (Gothicus), the reverse depicting Laetitia standing.  Last antoninianus was issued under Probus (276-282). the reverse of this coin depicts Probus receiving a globe surmounted by Victory from Jupiter. There is a little AE of Constantine the Great (307-37), depicting 2 soldiers with standards between, another of Julian II (360-3), Julian with globe resting on a spear on the reverse. One more of Gratian (367-383) with Gratian holding a labarum and resting on a shield on the reverse, and lastly a tiny AE of Theoodosius (379-395) with VOT X MULT XX on the reverse.

Unidentified lot
9 genuine ancient bronze coins that have not been identified, and in all honesty, I think one or two would be very hard to accurately nail.  I noticed an antoninianus of Claudius Gothicus a coin of Constans a Byzantine coin and, unusually, an antoninianus of Carausius. They date from the 3rd - 5th centuries.  They are, by no means, world beaters, but are all genuine, a bit of fun and not too expensive.
