Commentary


Ce type de triens pourrait facilement être confondu avec le type IX au nom de DVTTA ; le style du droit et du revers sont les mêmes mais la légende de revers varie. Cet exemplaire est typique de cette série, tant par son style que par le métal. A titre d’exemple, le B. 4965 (= Prou 1130) ne contient que 20,9%, 74,3% d’argent et 4,8% de cuivre.
Le revers de notre monnaie semble avoir été frappé avec le même coin que les n° 105 (Castro 1441) et 107 (commerce 1961) de l’étude de J. Lafaurie.
