Commentary


Poids très lége.rAtelier rare.
En 1949, le Roman Imperial Coinage avait répertorié 44 émissions différentes entre 364 et 375. J.-P. Callu a magistralement démontré que 44 émissions sur onze ans répondaient à une répartition de production par trimestre et a reconstitué la structure exacte de ces émissions.
