Commentary


Rubans de type 3. Légendes de droit et de revers partiellement ponctuées. Ce type semble de la plus grande rareté et manque à la plupart des ouvrages de référence. D’après P. V Hill, ce type d’aureus pourrait avoir été frappé à l’occasion de la seconde victoire dacique de Trajan et au Triomphe qui l’accompagna.
