As, 11.11g
Lyon mint, 71 AD
Obv: IMP CAES VESPASIAN AVG COS III; Head of Vespasian, r.; globe at point of bust
Rev: VICTORIA NAVALIS; S C in field; Victory stg. r. on prow, with wreath and palm
RIC 1178 (R2). BMC p. 201 . BNC 812.
Acquired from Harlan J Berk, Fixed Price 4, October 2020.

A fairly rare VICTORIA NAVALIS variant struck at Lugdunum (modern Lyon) during the huge bronze issue of 71 AD. The Victory on prow type is traditionally attributed to the naval victory Vespasian won on Lake Gennesaret (Sea of Galilee) during the Jewish War.

Good overall eye-appeal.
