The bronze coin features Emperor Valens (328 – 9 August 378), fully Flavius Julius Valens Augustus (Latin: flavivs ivlivs valens avgvstvs), who was the Eastern Roman Emperor from 364 to 378. He was given the eastern half of the empire by his brother Valentinian I after the latter's accession to the throne.
