ROMAN IMPERATORIAL, Octavian and Antony, AR Quinarius - Crawford 529/4b
Rome, The Imperators.
Antony and Octavian, 39 BCE.
AR Quinarius (1.60g; 14mm).
Military mint moving with Octavian.

Obverse: III ∑VIR - R∑P∑C; veiled and diademed head of Concordia facing right.

Rev: M∑ANTON - C∑CAESAR; two hands clasped around caduceus.
References: Crawford 529/4b; HCRI 304; BMCRR (East) 128.

The coin likely celebrates the reconciliation of Octavian and Antony, memorialized by the pact at Brundisium in October of 40 BCE. Sear suggests that Octavian may have issued this type in Gaul, a former Antony stronghold and a big user of quinarii.
