Commentary


C’est la première fois que nous proposons ce type de denier qui semble beaucoup plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les ouvrages généraux. Il n’y a aucun exemplaire de ce type reproduit dans l’ouvrage d’Ulrich Schaaf, Münzen der römischen Kaizerzeit mit Schiffsdartsellungen, Mayence 2003 alors que nous avons quatre deniers du même type de revers pour Caracalla.
