From Curtis Clay: The obverse of Jochen's As shows the rare earliest
portrait of Claudius' reign, youthful and reminescent of his brother
Germanicus. I think Jochen's coin will have a rank high among the luckiest
first purchases ever made!
PILEUS, a felt cap, given to slaves who received their freedom. Therefore a attribute of Liberty
