Commentary


Poids lourd. Rubans de type 3. Ptéryges à peine visibles sous le plaudamentum. Sur les monnaies syriennes, le portrait de l'empereur est beaucoup moins stéréotypé que sur les deniers romains ; preuve est que les graveurs syriens étaient capables de rendre les portraits de manière plus expressive et plus individuelle.
