Teutoburgium:
Radiate, cuirassed bust of Probus looking right. I do not see that this is special bust variation, except that it seems to be double struck (another head of Probus is visible in the background.

Zenon M:
See: J. Guillemain, La monetazione di Probo a Roma (276-282 d.C.), tav. 3 no. 585 - a die match?
