This type refers to the suppression of the Pisonian conspiracy. The would-be assassin, Fl. Scaevinus, took a sacred dagger from the Temple of Salus in Ferentum to kill Nero with. One of Scaevinus' freedmen betrayed the plot by carrying that very dagger to Nero as evidence. Nero dedicaced the dagger in the Temple of Salus in Rome, inscribing it "to Jupiter the Protector". Both Salus and Jupiter Custos were heavily promoted on the coinage as guardians of the reign.

Obv: P SEPTIMIVS GETA PIVS AVG BRIT
Rev: ADVENTVS AVGVSTI

"Two spec. known previously: BMC 230, pl. 60.1, ex Capt. Smyth no. 361, "purchased at Mr. Willet's sale, in 1834," and my coll. ex NAC 1995, Friedrich Coll., lot 1701.

Surprisingly all three spec. are from different obv. and rev. dies.

The same type must have been struck on sestertii of Septimius and Caracalla too, but no specimens are known.

I know the obverse die in combination with five rev. dies of the type VICT BRIT TR P III COS II S C, Victory seated r. on arms, inscribing shield.

Date of that type is after Dec. 10, 210 (Geta becomes TR P III), but before news of Septimius' death at York on 4 Feb. 211 reached Rome (whereupon Geta became P P, not recorded in the VICT BRIT legend).

The ADVENTVS AVGVSTI type is exactly contemporaneous, and proves that, doubtless because of Septimius' illness, the emperors had made the decision to return to Rome and had communicated that intention to the Senate and people of the capital even before Septimius died.

BMC calls the figure leading the horse a "soldier". However, it seems to be a female with bare r. breast, therefore Virtus or Roma. She is helmeted, carries a vexillum over her r. shoulder, and leads the horse by the reins with her l. hand.

The emperor on horseback is laureate, wears military dress, raises his r. hand in greeting, and holds a spear pointing upwards under his l. arm." Curtis Clay

This coin has the AG legend error combined with a reverse that was used for Caesars (CAESS used for Constantine II as Caesar) being used for Constantine as Augustus. Constantine has the same reverse type but with legend VIRTVS AVGG.

The coin combines obverse of Constantine I with reverse of Constantine II:

On many of these, the portrait strongly ressembles that of Vitellius. This is because they were struck in Rome and Lugdunum prior to Vespasian's triumphant arrival, and the die-cutters had no accurate bust to model the dies from. They compromised, and simply modified the dies they had used for the previous ruler.
