EF - Extremely Fine, good original lustre, a few minor marks.Very good condition and attractive coin of this eastern mint of Antioch, note the 'christogram' to the right of Victory illustrating that at this point Christianity was very much the state religion, within a few years of the issue of this coin all other forms of worship would be banned.
