PROVIDENT SC altar-enclosure (of the Ara Providentiae Augusti?) RIC -, Cohen 177 (2 F) wrongly classified as GB The reverse feature an altar of Providence, like the Ara Providentiae Augusti depicted on the asses of the 'Divus Augustus Pater' struck in Rome, but differs in the decorations and mouldings; it may then represent a local monument from Lugdunum? It may also be considered in the light of other types struck at the same time in Lugdunum, like the Jupiter temple type for Vespasian: a Rome monuments serie? Scarce. Nice natural patina. Found near Fontainebleau (60 km South of Paris).
