Commentary


Un des premiers antoniniens de Julia Domna sans croissant. Normalement ce type est décrit sans croissant sous le buste drapé ce qui n’est pas normal pour l’antoninien. Ce type n’est répertorié que pour l’antoninien et le sesterce et semble beaucoup plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux.
