Commentary


Rubans de type 3. Petit pan de paludamentum. Ce type de quadrans a été frappé en deux occasions bien différentes : en 107, pour le donativum commémorant la fin des guerres daciques et en 115 à l’occasion des vicennalia (vingtième anniversaire de règne). Notre quadrans a plutôt été frappé en 115.
