- L PLANC PR VRB or L PLANC PRAEF VRB, on gold coins (aurei and quinarii) of Julius Caesar, struck in 46 BC.
- ANN DCCCLXXIIII NAT VRB P CIR CON, on gold and large brass medallion of Hadrian. This is the only coin giving a date from the foudation of Rome. The year 874 = AD 121. The explanation for the letter P is difficult, and has been variously interpreted as Plebeiis, Populi, or Primum. The whole legend is probably intended to record that Hadrian, in celebrating the 874th birthday of Rome by holding the Palilia, added for the first time to their simple games the spendid exhibitions of the circus.
INT VRB Introitus Urbis, on large brass and second brass coins of Gallienus, with the obverse legend GENIVS P R. These coins are generally attributed to the reign of Gallienus, but it is not known on what occasion they were struck. It may be they were issued in AD 263 after the seige of Byzantium.
