Ancient Roman Coin
Mintmark appears to be: SIS (Siscia) (modern day Sisak, Croatia)
Coins are from my personal collection. Description is from the insert that came with the coin when I originally purchased them. I am not an ancient coin expert, so I do not know how accurate their descriptions are. Please look at the photos and judge for yourself.
When he was 7, Gratian was made co-emperor with his father, Valentinian I. He became Augustus of the west when Valentinian died the next year. Gratian fought the Alemanni during the years 377-378. In 383, Magnus Maximus, proclaimed Augustus by his soldiers in Britain, crossed into France. His army met Gratian's near Paris, where Gratian's cavalry suddenly defected. Gratian was captured and killed.
