112 Probus (276-282 A.D.), AE-Antoninianus, RIC V-II Not in RIC, Siscia, FORTVNA REDVX, Bust-F, -/-//XXIT, Extremely Rare!!!
avers:- IMP-C-PROBVS-PF-AVG, Radiate, cuirassed bust right. (This avers legend not listed in RIC from this type!!!)
revers:- FORTVNA-REDUX, Fortuna seated left on shield, holding baton and cornucopiae.
"This is an extremely rare issue of Probus, which Pink attributes to the 4th emission of Siscia mint. It seems that RIC 695 is incorrectly described: IMP C M AVR PROBVS P F AVG, bust type G (radiate helmeted, cuirassed bust l, holding spear and shield), cited from Voetter.
However, Alfoldy lists two examples with obverse legend IMP C PROBVS P F AVG: type 36/1 - Radiate, cuirassed bust right (specimen in Frankfurt) and type 36/2 - Radiate, cuirassed bust left (collection Missong, Vienna), in addition, another specimen of Alf 36/1 is kept in British Museum, coming from Gloucester hoard . All examples have -/-//XXIT mintmark. The same obverse is listed by Pink." by Incerum, thank you Incerum.
