Pupienus, 22 April - 29 July 238 A.D.
RIC does not include this type; Cohen 43 was left out as doubtful. Curtis Clay informed us that Cohen 43 quotes Mionnet, who is probably relying on Vaillant. Vaillant in his 1682 ed. cites Dux Sabaudiae, the Royal coll. at Turin. The BMC specimen is a St. Urbain forgery, Pink, Num. Chron. 1933, pl. XX,.5
