PROBUS MPR 474
OBVERSE: IMP PROBVS P F AVG
REVERSE: ROMAE AETER
BUST TYPE: H2 (BASTIEN'S CLASSIFICATION)
FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: --//R≤≥Δ
WEIGHT 3.43g / AXIS: 6h / WIDTH: 22mm
RIC: 183 CORR. (SEE NOTE BELOW)
J.GUILLEMAIN, MONETAZIONE DI PROBO A ROMA (276-282 d.C.), 2009: 474 (187 EX.)
COLLECTION NO. 983
Note: RIC lists these coins with R-><-A (R thunderbolt A), RჲΓ (R wreath Gamma), RჲΔ (R wreath Delta), omitting R thunderbolt Delta.
R thunderbolt A is most certainly a misreading of Δ for A, since hundreds of such coins have been attested from hoards as being from officina four. Meanwhile, I have never come across a specimen with Romae Aeter from officna one (R thunderbolt A). Officina "A" in the last emmissions before the coded eqviti series officina A only struck Victoria Germ reverse, not Romae Aeter reverse.
Thus, rather than a variant, one can catalogue coins with R-><-Δ as either RIC 183, ignoring RIC's mistake, or as RIC 183 corr.
Thanks to Grzegorz Kryszczuk for the above observation.
