Pour les triens d’ANGLVS I, avec ANCCO MONET au revers, la croix varie, selon que le sommet et les bras de la croix sont potencés ou non. Cet exemplaire se rapproche du n° 41 avec une légende VICS FIT au droit et ANCCO MONET au revers avec de petits O ronds. Il semble d’ailleurs que ce triens soit issu du même coin de droit que le n° 41 (musée monétaire, Paris, n° 17).
