IMP C M AVR PROBVS PIVS AVG / VIRT PROBI AVG - UNICUM !!! (new photo)
OBVERSE: IMP C M AVR PROBVS PIVS AVG
REVERSE: VIRT PROBI AVG
BUST TYPE: B
FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: -/-//KA•Δ•
WEIGHT 4.18g / AXIS: 4h / DIAMETER: 21-23mm
RIC: UNLISTED WITH VIRT PROBI AVG REVERSE LEGEND
COLLECTION NO. 1069
NOTE: extremely rare and desirable abbreviated VIRT PROBI AVG reverse legend (instead of the full VIRTVS PROBI AVG legend). This legend was first published by Ph. Gysen in 2000 in the article: Nouvelles données concernant l'atelier de Serdica sous le règne de Probus.

Currently only 23 specimens of this reverse legend are known (information from Ph. Gysen). My specimen is however the only one from officina delta and the only one to have the scarce IMP C M AVR PROBVS PIVS AVG obverse legend. Therefore it is a true unicum and of the highest numismatic interest!
