Roman Provincial Coins of Gaul
Augustus and Agrippa, c. 9 - 3 B.C., Colonia Augusta Nemausus, Gaul

|Roman| |Gaul|, |Augustus| |and| |Agrippa,| |c.| |9| |-| |3| |B.C.,| |Colonia| |Augusta| |Nemausus,| |Gaul||cut| |half| |dupondius| |(as)|
This two-headed brass dupondius was commonly cut between the heads, creating two individual one-as coins. The reverse commemorates the conquest of Egypt in 30 B.C. This theme was probably used at Nemausus because the colony was settled by Egyptian Greeks and veterans from Anthony's army that had surrendered to Octavian at Actium.
RP58808. Bronze cut half dupondius (as), cf. RIC I 158, RPC I 524, SNG Cop 699, SNG Tüb 152, SRCV I 1730, gVF, weight 6.485 g, maximum diameter 24.9 mm, die axis 180o, Colonia Augusta Nemausus (Nimes, France) mint, c. 9 - 3 B.C.; obverse IMP DIVI F, back to back heads of Augustus and Agrippa (cut, Agrippa off flan), Augustus laureate head right; reverse COL NEM, crocodile right chained to a palm, wreath above, two palm fronds below; SOLD

RP46010. Leaded bronze cut fragment, cut half of RPC I 515, VF, green patina, weight 5.849 g, maximum diameter 32.1 mm, Lugdunum (Lyon, France) mint, obverse [IMP] (above), CAES[AR DIVI F] DIVI IVLI, laureate head of Caesar left [and bare head of Octavian right (off flan)]; reverse C•I•V (above), prow right with large superstructure, ornamented with an eye; SOLD


Julius Caesar and Octavian, 36 B.C., Vienne, Gaul

|Julius| |Caesar|, |Julius| |Caesar| |and| |Octavian,| |36| |B.C.,| |Vienne,| |Gaul||cut| |fragment|
Vienne is in south-eastern France, 20 miles (32 km) south of Lyon, on the Rhone River. Before the arrival of the Roman armies under Julius Caesar, Vienne was the capital city of the Allobroges. RPC misspells the name, Vienna.

The denomination struck at Vienne was a dupondius and the type was frequently halved to make two asses.

Bronze cut fragment, cut half of RPC I 517, aVF, weight 7.006 g, maximum diameter 30.0 mm, die axis 0o, Gaul, Vienne mint, obverse [I]MP / [CAESAR DIVI F DIVI IV]LI, bare heads of [Julius Caesar (off flan)] left and Octavian right; reverse [C I V] (Colonia Iulia Viennensis), prow right with superstructure; nice green patina; SOLD
