This very nice coin but who is on it?

Looks like an Antoninianus of Aurelian. The reverse looks like ORIENS AVG; Sol advancing right, treading down captive, holding branch and bow. Sorry, I'm not sure about the mint, but there is XXI in the exergue, followed by R. The R bit indicates the mint (XXI most likely means 20 parts bronze, 1 part silver).

Hope this helps!
