Nero RIC I 454 SPQR Countermark
Nero. AD 54-68. AE As. Lugdunum (Lyon) mint. c. AD 65. (10.47g, 28.9m, 6h). Obv: NERO CLAVD CAESAR AVG [GER P M TR P] IMP P P Bare head right, globe at point of bust, SPQR Countermark on neck. Rev: PONTIF MAX [TR POT IMP P P], S C, Nero, as Apollo Apollo Citharoedus walking right, carrying lyre. RIC I 454.

Another coin obtained, not for the coin itself, but rather for the countermark. The SPQR countermark used primarily on coins of Nero minted in Lugdunum, these are thought to relate to the uprising of Vindex. Because of its connection with the uprising resulting in the end of Nero, I though it might have a place in my collection.
