Dupondius Trajan - Victoria (unrecorded?)
TRAJAN. Æ Dupondius. Rome, 108-110 AD
Obv. IMP CAES NERVAE TRAIANO AVG GER DAC P M TR P COS V PP Radiated and draped bust right, seen from 3/4
Rev. SPQR OPTIMO PRINCIPI Victoria staging facing, holding crown and palm.
RIC -; Cohen -
'the Senate and Roman people to the best prince'
Nice natural patina.
Very rare type and bust. The type with standing Victory facing, holding crown in right hand associated to SPQR legend seems unpublished for bronze. A similar Victory type exists for As with TR POT COS IIII PP legend.
Date of issue should be consistent with silver issues, confirmed with bust style.
