Commentary


Comme le DT. S99A, cette monnaie se distingue du classique DT. 99 avec un ornement figurant peut-être un pendant d’oreille. Ce type précis est repris par J. Sills comme la classe Ic dont il recense six exemplaires, en faisant la classe la mieux représentée. Les deux pommes de pin (?) devant le visage sont rarement visibles ; elles ne sont pas sans rappeler le motif se trouvant sous le menton de certains statères des Parisii.
