Commentary


Le flan de cet exemplaire est particulièrement large et lourd. La tête est d'un style très fruste tandis que le taureau du revers a un oeil clairement précisé. Le style et la provenance de cet exemplaire qui aurait été trouvé à Manching, font penser à H. Patat que ce potin pourrait être une imitation locale. Le droit de cet exemplaire n’est pas sans faire penser au n° 886 de MONNAIES XV.
