Commentary


Pour le groupe A, il existe de nombreuses variétés. Ce potin correspond au DT. 3087 mais il rappelle aussi certains potins des Éduens “au cheval marin” série DT 890 dont l’exemplaire de la classe I est justement qualifié de type hybride ou de transition.
Cet exemplaire a un droit très large avec une empreinte d’au moins 21 ou 22 mm alors que le revers est inscrit dans un épais listel d’environ 17 mm.
