Roman Republic AR Victoriatus(3.39g, 17mm, 8h). Anonymous. ca. 212 BC. Uncertain mint. Laureate head of Jupiter right. Border of dots / Victory standing right, crowning trophy with wreath. ROMA in exergue. Line border. Crawford - but cf Crawford 91/1b & see P. Debernardi & F. Carbone "The Ara Basilica and Smaller Victoriati Hoards from Paestum", NC 178(2018), pp 312, type 91A.

Ex Aes Rude Titano 42, 29 September 1990, 71

This is a rather mysterious and rare victoriatus from a small series that Pierluigi Debernardi and Federico Carbone in "The Ara Basilica and Smaller Vicoriati Hoards from Paestum", NC 178(2018) refer to as "91A". The authors call it 91A because stylistically it is related to the torque series, Crawford 91/1a and its uninscribed sibling issue 91/1b, but there are enough differences to separate this type out into its own distinct variety. About 20 examples are known of this 91A series, only two of which appeared in a published hoard, and there is a similar dearth of evidence for Crawford 91/1a and 1b, so not much is known about the mint location of these issues and the only thing that can really be said with certainty is that it must be one of the earlier issues of victoriati based on its inclusion in the Ara del Santuario hoard discussed in the paper linked above, which otherwise only includes early issues.
