ADLOCVT. COH. S. C. Brass medallion and large brass of Nero. - Emperor, Praetorian, Prefect, and three soldiers. - "Nero, attended by Burrhus, both togated, on a tribunal, standing near a circular edifice with columns, which may be emblematic of the praetorian camp. He is addressing three soldiers who stand before him, bearing military ensigns, and is probably promising the donative on which they proclaimed him Emperor; whence we may conclude the medal to have been struck A. D. 54." - Smyth 41.
