Crispus, AE3, 319-320, London


Crispus, AE3, 319-320, London FL IVL CRIS_PVS NOB CAES Laureate, draped, cuirassed bust right, seen from behind VICTORIAE LAETAE PRINC PERP Two Victories, standing facing each other, inscribing shield with VOT | PR above altar with diamond pattern, dot in each corner, circle with dot in center PLN in exergue 17mm, 3.37g RIC VII, -- (cf. RIC 164 for type) Note: B3 bust type not attested in RIC for this issue. Note: RIC footnotes #164 "is, so to speak, a forewarning of the subsequent issue which was to include obverses of the sons of Constantine". Also, RIC notes for #158, an example with a shield on the altar, referring to the Senckler collection, but was unable to verify. Perhaps this example is another of the "shield on altar" type, as RIC does not describe in any other footnotes a type with large circle and center dot. Jeff Clark agrees with me on the "shield on altar" proposal for this coin.
