Antoninianus of Florian - Securitas seated left
Antoninianus of Florian AD 276. Mint Siscia.
IMP C M AN FLORIANVS P AVG. RIC legend 2.
Radiate, draped & cuirassed bust right.
SECVRITAS SAECVLI XXIQ in exergue.
Securitas seated left, holding sceptre &
resting elbow on back of chair with hand raised to head.
CNG allotted this coin as RIC Vol V Pt1 No 105 (Siscia)Variety.
However, 105 records Securitas standing not seated.
But the seated variety is recorded at Ticinum - See RIC Vol V Pt 1 No 95
Apart from the Mintmark the style of the lettering,with the
A & V very wide at base or apex, is typical of Siscia.
Strangely RIC states that Siscia's output of Antoninianii was small
and yet without exception examples are rated as 'common'.
