Valens. AD 364-378. AV Solidus (21mm, 4.18 g, 1h). Heraclea mint, 1st officina. Struck AD 364. Diademed, draped, and cuirassed bust right / Emperor standing facing, head right, holding labarum with christogram and Victory on globe; SMHA. RIC 1b; Depeyrot 5/2. VF, scratches. Rare.

An error on the part of the engraver, Victory does not stand directly on the globe, but rather floats to the right of it.
