Commentary


Coulé. Dénomination très rare, poids compris entre 13 et 32 grammes (erreur de poids dans le HGCS 1, n° 599 et sur l’ensemble de la série).
Le monnayage de bronze de Luceria semble avoir été important, débutant vers 280 avant J.-C. avec une série coulée complète de l’as à l’once, suivie par une deuxième série vers 220 avant J.-C. Le monnayage frappé débuterait à peu près à la même période et outre le rare Quincunx, comprendrait le triens, le quadrans, le sextans, l’once et la semuncia.
