Procopius Type Set (365-366). More precisely -- Sept. 28, 365 to May 27, 366 according to RIC.

There are only two regular types published in RIC IX, both with legend REPARATIO FEL TEMP and emperor standing holding standard or spear in right and resting left on shield. They are:
Type 7:  bust left, larger AE3, chi-rho in upper right field.
Type 8:  bust right, smaller AE3, no chi-rho in upper right field.
Since then a new type has been discovered, Type 8A, with reverse SECVRITAS REIPVB.

Type 7, Procopius:  REPARATIO FEL TEMP
Obverse bust of Procopius left
Emperor standing left holding larabrum and resting left on shield, chi-rho in upper right field.
Sometimes with a small uncertain mushroom-shaped object left on the exergual line.

****** Supplemental List ***********
There are apparently a few pieces of two extremely rare larger denominations. These are so rare that I have excluded them from the main tables and put them in the supplemental list.
These are of the same reverse type as Types 7 and 8.
"AE30" RIC Her 6, R4, plate XV.8 in VG.
"medallion?" RIC Cyz 4 p. 240, R4. Cayon 7 (Cyz) "double maiorina" p. 2742, 1 photo in aVF, holed at top/top.
RIC Con 14 "medallion". Cayon 8 (Con) "double maiorina" p. 2742, 1 photo in VF+/aVF, holed at top/bottom.
The above three RIC listings are, from the Cayon photos, clearly the same denomination and type, merely from different mints.The following is the same type in smaller size.
AE2, RIC Cyz 6, R4, RIC Nic 8. Cayon 9-10, no photos.
