Claudius, 25 January 41 - 13 October 54 A.D., Caesarea-Eusebia, Commagene, Syria
This reverse die, lacking P P, is noted in RPC as an engraver's error since it shares obverse dies with P P specimens.

The wreath on the reverse is the corona civica, the oak wreath awarded to Roman citizens ex senatus consulto (by special decree of the Senate) for saving the life of another citizen by slaying an enemy in battle. It became a prerogative for Roman emperors to be awarded the Civic Crown, originating with Augustus, who was awarded it in 27 B.C. for saving the lives of citizens by ending the series of civil wars.
