Commentary


Rubans de type 3. Siège particulier posé sur un petite estrade. Comme pour le denier d'Auguste, cette pièce appartient à l'atelier impérial de Lyon et ce type de denier a circulé pendant pratiquement un siècle. Il se rencontre très souvent avec des monnaies gauloises de la phase terminale dans les fouilles archéologiques. C’est la monnaie romaine la plus courante en Gaule pour les Julio-Claudiens. La quatrième émission se caractérise par un socle représenté par une ligne et les pieds du siège sont ornementés au revers ; au droit, les rubans de la couronne sont parallèles.
