Commentary


Rubans de type 3. Ptéryges larges sous le paludamentum. Les aureurs du Roman Provincial Coinage ont recensé 6 exemplaires avec un poids moyen de 12,46 g. Ce type semble plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux. C’est la première fois que nous proposons un exemplaire à la vente.
