Commentary


Rubans de type 3.
Le nouveau grand bronze, appelé "follis" est taillé au 1/32e de livre (10,15 g). Cette dénomination vaut 12,5 deniers avant 301 et correspond à l'ancien sesterce. Il est légèrement saucé (3% d'argent). Le néo ou pseudo-antoninien est l'ancien antoninien, il vaut 2,5 deniers, il est taillé au 1/96e de livre et pèse 3,38 g. Un follis vaut 5 néo-antoniniens. La fabrication de ce revers est limitée aux ateliers orientaux : Thessalonique, Héraclée, Cyzique, Antioche et Alexandrie. Pour la première émission d'Héraclée, nous avons cinq officines, (lettres grecques A à E) partagées entre les augustes et les césars.
