Tripolis mint Probus CLEMENTIA TEMP RIC 928
Ant. IMP C MAVR PROBVS AVG, Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust R, seen from the back. CLEMENTIA TEMP, Probus receiving globe from Jupiter. Crescent in field, KA in exe. Tripolis, RIC 928, Common.

A good example of the Tripolis style for this emperor; it's quite distinctive, and quite naturalistic by comparison with other mints.

Tripolis portraits also have very large ears usually (compared to other mints).

Very interesting, I have not seen any examples from Tripoli. Just the type of coin for this gallery!
