Seems to be a fancy coin whose obv. and rev. originate from 2 obversers of real types, some very rare and spectacular mid bronzes (sestertius, at this time) struck under Aurelian in Serdica, RIC 320 and 321
- obv. SOL DOM IMP ROMANI Bust of radiated Sol to r., four horses going r. (RIC 320)
- obv. SOL DOM IMP ROMANI Bust facing, radiate, draped; below, on each side, two horses prancing (RIC 321)
- rev. AVRELIANVS CONS AVG Emperor in military dress stg. l., holding patera over small altar in r. hand and sceptre in l. hand.

See an ex for RIC 321 at http://www.ric.mom.fr/en/coin/2667?f...&page=8&hpp=20
