This is one of the reverse types in a large group of coins called the FEL TEMP REPARATIO series. Other reverse images in this group include the emperor dragging a barbarian out of a hut or the emperor standing in a shipwhich is being steered by victory. This last type is interesting in that the emperor also holds a labarum with the Christian Chi-Rho symbol.
As with most of the late Roman bronze coin types, the standard references used by collectors, dealers, and scholars are the Roman Imperial Coinage volumes VII through X and Carson, Hill, and Kent.
