This coin is said to be struck from the mid-4th to early-5th centuries. With the prototypes for these coins struck in Treveri/Trier mint, and with those two types both being first struck in 316, 325 is the most-likely beginning date for this entire type of AE struck by an Uncertain Germanic Tribe.
The denominations of bronze coins that are unknown to numismatists are referred to as Æ (AE), followed by the coin's diameter. The Æ part simply means the coin is made of a base alloy, and because the diameter of these coins is never exactly as intended, different numbers can appear after the Æ for the same type.
The exact lettering of the surrounding legend may vary.
