Poids léger. Rubans de type 3. Pour ce type qui semble anodin, nous avons deux types de revers différents : le premier avec AVGVR/ PON MAX (RIC. 42) et le second avec TRI POT (RIC 43) comme sur notre exemplaire, deniers qui ont tous les deux été frappés en 71 et font référence au grand pontificat et à l’aspect sacré de celui qui est revêtu de la puissance tribunitienne. Le revers AVGVR/ TRI POT sera ensuite réutilisé associé à une nouvelle légende de droit : IMP CAES VESP P M COS IIII, frappé en 72-73.
