NOT IN RIC

HYBRID. Obverse TRIER 480 with reverse TRIER 475. There is no dot in crescent in m.m. but see CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 206-207. Note somehow crude portrait and errors in legends: NOB instead of expected NOB C, AVG instead of expected AVGG and bad first "E" in PROVIDENTIAE. Probably an ancient imitation.
