Commentary


Ce triens est très proche du Belfort 527, avec un avers très similaire et une légende de revers comparable (si ce n’est la terminaison avec une S finale sur notre exemplaire au lieu du C reproduit sur le Belfort).
Toutes les légendes semblent dégénérer de AVRELIANIS. Au total, ce sont 35 exemplaires qui ont été recensés dans le Moneta pour le monétaire AVGIVLFVS, avec de nombreuses variantes de légendes tant avers que revers.
