RIC IX Thessalonica 61a

 

In A.D. 383, Magnus Maximus defeated the Emperor Gratian and claimed the title of Augustus. Valentinian II fled his territory and Theodosius I moved to meet Magnus. Theodosius I temporarily occupied the mint of Thessalonica from 25 Aug 383 until autumn of 384. Theodosius returned control of the Western territories to Valentinian II including the mint in Thessalonica and this reverse type seems “to have been Valentinian’s earliest issue after his flight from Italy.” (RIC IX)
