Commentary


Rubans de type 1. Petit pan de paludamentum sur l’épaule gauche, visible aussi sur le cou. Ce type semble beaucoup plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux. L’exemplaire signalé dans le Roman Silver Coins III, n° 401a appartient au musée de Bruxelles. C’est la première fois que nous présentons un exemplaire à la vente.
