Plautius Silvanus, Proconsul of Asia under Augustus 4 - 5 A.D., Pergamon, Mysia
|Pergamon|, |Plautius| |Silvanus,| |Proconsul| |of| |Asia| |under| |Augustus| |4| |-| |5| |A.D.,| |Pergamon,| |Mysia|, M. Plautius Silvanus was Proconsul of Asia from 4 to 5 A.D. He was consul in the 2 A.D. and belonged to the inner circle of Augustus. Whether the legend on the obverse refers to Augustus, remains a question, likewise the exact interpretation of the scene. Eastern denominations are not fully understood, but this brass coin may have been equal to the Roman as or 1/3 of a dupondius.

The adjustment marks visible in the fields probably indicate that this flan was cut from a round bar, not cast. These marks are found on some other examples of the type.
