Some Unusual Fifth Century Coins

The coin on the far left is an AE4 of Valentinian III with votis and wreath reverse. The two coins to the right of the Valentinian III coin are monogrammed AE4s of Marcian. The coin at far right is an AE4 of Leo depicting a rather stick - figure like representation of the empress erina on the reverse. The coin near the bottom is an Ostrogothic coin of Theoderic in Italy (AD 493 - 526). The large "V" on the reverse probably indicates that this is a piece of 5 Nummi. The Ostrogothic coin is the largest at about 14mm.
