Note: extremely rare cuirass decoration in the form of a laurel wreath (probably corona triumphalis). In the coinage of Probus such laurel wreath is typically represented only on consular robe (toga picta + tunica palmata) not on cuirass. Apparently only the second known specimen.

Extremely rare variant without any mintmarks. This coin is part of a true "adventvs" issue and was most likely distributed by the emperor himself upon entering the city of Siscia contrary to regular issues of coins with the adventvs reverse and mintmarks in the exergue, which often were struck long after the emperor had left the city. Attribution of coins without any mintmarks to a particular mint is done on the basis of careful analysis of the coin's style and lettering.

NOTE: Extremely rare Alfoldi reverse variant no. 70 in which the two river gods (Savvs and Colapis) are very close to one another and are placed underneath the personification of Siscia instead of being separated and placed on both sides of Siscia (as in variant no. 69). My coin is however unlisted with E1 (Bastien) / G (RIC V.2) bust and XXIVI mintmark.

Of the highest rarity, possibly an unicum.

ALFOLDI 070 / - SISCIA PROBI AVG UNLISTED IN ALFODI RRR85 viewsOBVERSE: IMP C M AVR PROBVS P F AVG
REVERSE: SISCIA PROBI AVG
BUST TYPE: E1 (BASTIEN'S CLASSIFICATION)
FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: --//XXIVI
WEIGHT 3.15g / AXIS: 12h / WIDTH 21-22mm
RIC 764
ALFOLDI 070 / - (UNLISTED WITH E1 BUST AND XXIVI MINTAMRK)
COLLECTION NO. 568

NOTE: Extremely rare Alfoldi reverse variant no. 70 in which the two river gods (Savvs and Colapis) are very close to one another and are placed underneath the personification of Siscia instead of being separated and placed on both sides of Siscia (as in variant no. 69). My coin is however unlisted with E1 (Bastien) / G (RIC V.2) bust and XXIVI mintmark.

Of the highest rarity, possibly an unicum.
