UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND, REVERSE VARIETY. Obverse legend D N CRISPO NOB CAES is known only for LYONS. Reverse combines legend for Caesars [CAESARVM NOSTRORVM] with VOT/XX which is expected rather for Augusti. However, Bruun mentions in footnote 64 on p. 401 that: "Maur. [Maurice, Numismatique constantinienne] i, p. 325, rev. VI, records a CAESARVM NOSTRORVM/VOT XX in B [Berlin], obv. 5 (B4 l.), m.m. AQP, S with and without S|F in field. No such coin in B".

NOTES

Coin sold on eBay in May 2006 for $55.61.
