Commentary


Pour ce type, M. Crawford a relevé une estimation inférieure à trente coins de droit et inférieure à trente-trois coins de revers. Pour ce type, d’après M. Crawford, seulement un exemplairedans le trésor d’Aquileia était recensé. Ce denier est infiniment plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages de référence. C’est la première fois que nous le proposons à la vente.
