Commentary


Ce type précis correspond au n° 1637 de MONNAIES 38 !
Cette variante est bien plus rare qu’il n’y semble.
Ce potin ne correspond pas au DT. 3254 ; il existe effectivement deux types de potin TOC au cheval en fonction du module et de la légende. Le potin DT. S3257B présente le même motif () entre les jambes et au-dessus du dos du cheval.
Cet exemplaire d'un petit module manque au Nouvel Atlas, avec un Q au-dessus du cheval et () entre les jambes.
