Commentary


Peut-être un des derniers deniers frappés du vivant de César, sujet controversé entre les différents historiens et attributions. Pour ce type, M. Crawford avait relevé quarante-cinq coins de droit et quarante-deux coins de revers pour deux variétés. Portrait de Jules César fantastique de toute beauté qui semble s’animer et sortir du flan monétaire.
