Commentary


Jolie tête de Pan. Pour ce type, M. Crawford a relevé une estimation inférieure à trente coins de droit et inférieure trente-trois coins de revers. Ce type semble beaucoup plus rare que ne le laissent paraître les ouvrages généraux. Ce denier est en fait un hybride des gens Vibia et Postumia.
