This is a coin of Antioch, from series marked A//XXI to ЄΔ//XXI.
RIC 922, p. 120. Pink p. 40 [28].

Siscia did not have an officina H (= 8) in that reign.

This is a coin from the 4th Eastern mint. See S. Estiot "L’Empereur et l’usurpateur: un 4e atelier oriental sous Probus." In: Studies in Ancient Coinage in Honour of Andrew Burnett, Spink, London, 2015.

This is a coin of Tripolis, RIC 927, p. 121. Pink, P. 42 [30].

I think the fields have clearly been smoothed and some elements on the reverse (emperor's face and dress) has been recut (tooled).

A second Piece was auctioned here:
The old ticket confirms that the coin was found in the northern Black Sea region
  Tejas554 19. Apr. 2018, 16:52

This imitation Comes from the northern Black Sea region and was made by the Goths or Sarmatians.
  Tejas554 19. Apr. 2018, 16:49

This imitation is almost certainly not from India, but the northern Black Sea Region. Sarmatians and Goths seemed to have produced these in substantial quantities.

yes this is the same coin, but i guess it isn't tooled, but rather they have removed the patina that sometimes hides some details under it and after that they have repatinated it.
  Tejas554 13. Apr. 2018, 13:29

Wow, the "reworked" coin is numismatically practically worthless in my view.

Ex Clarence S. Bement Collection, Naville & Cie VIII, 1924, Lot 772. See::

(Page 43 and Table 24)

Same coin as this one (after smoothing, tooling and repatination):

The claim of a "riverine" patina thus appears to be a farce.

This is a later Ostrogothic nummus using a variation of the Theoderic monogram. The Odovacar monogram has no lower letter O and no letter R. Also on Odovacar nummi the obverse legend should not start with DN ... .
  Tejas554 10. Apr. 2018, 20:12

This coin cannot be attributed to Odovacar. The Odovacar monogram has no lower letter O. The bust is also wrong. This coin is an African (Vandalic?) nummus. See here:

The correct Crawford number is Crawford 72/4

Overstruck on jeton for Jean Cools, Treasurer at Brussels, 1677, with reference Dugniolle 4381.
  Tejas554 9. Apr. 2018, 12:08

The reverse shows the monogram of Athalaric:
This version of the monogram is otherwise only known from silver coins.
  Tejas554 9. Apr. 2018, 11:40

The letter "M" in COMOB was probably not intended. The engraver seemed to have corrected an engraving error and inadvertently creating an "M" . The mint mark is probably the regular CONOB.

Zenon died in 491 and thus did not defeat Odovacer in 493. Instead, it was Theoderic who defeated Odovacer.
  Tejas554 8. Apr. 2018, 23:08

The eagle should be directed to the left not the right. Its style is also very different from the official issues. This coin may be a contemporary imitation, i.e. an unofficial issue.
  Tejas554 8. Apr. 2018, 23:05

This coin is unlike any 5-nummi piece of the period. It is almost certainly a modern forgery.
