Commentary


Poids très léger. Rubans de type 3 aux extrémités bouletées. Robe consulaire richement ouvragée où les détails de la toga picta et de la toga palmata sont bien visibles. Au revers le globe n’est pas bien visible. Variante de césure de légende de droit qui ne semble pas recensée. Beaucoup plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux. C’est la première fois que nous proposons ce type à la vente.
