Doesn't look authentic to me, but I'm not an expert on Valens's aurei.

It's counterfeit, compare to genuine coin

The hair is too deeply grooved and the type looks wrong. 

These early coins were all hand cut by an engraver and there is usually cut lines around the type.

It’s Slavic and says Antov and Victoria and the back his first name is Devalens something. I speak Russian & have many of their ancients, but I have to agree with the others, it’s fake. Not even correct markings or look.
