Commentary


Ces petits deniers à la tête radiée sont connus pour Orléans et pour Poitiers. Sur cet exemplaire, le monétaire MARTINVS peut être restitué au droit et la fin de l'atelier AVRELIANIS CIVI est lisible sans ambiguïté, bien que partiellement hors flan.
Ces deniers ont rarement les légendes complètes mais le style confirme souvent leur attribution !.
