This coin was minted at Treveri (Trier, Germany), mintmark would have been TRPS. The mintmark has been clipped away - however, the shape of the bust and other stylistic features are only found on coinage from this mint. The clipping is a later feature, increasingly found on coinage after the abandonment of Britain (and Saxon migratory invasions) post 410 A.D.
