PROBUS CLEMENTIA TEMP 1st EMMISSION 
 OBVERSE: IMP C M AVR PROBVS P F AVG
 REVERSE: CLEMENTIA TEMP
 BUST TYPE: A2 = Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right, seen from rear
 FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: *//KA
 EMMISSION: 1
 WEIGHT 3.85g / AXIS: 6h / WIDTH 21mm
 MINT: 4th, unspecified oriental mint
 RIC 920 (ANTIOCHIA)
 COLLECTION NO. 871

Attribution of this coin to the 4th unspecified oriental mint instead of Antiochia (as in RIC V.II) is based on the article by S. Estiot, "L’Empereur et l’usurpateur: un 4e atelier oriental sous Probus"; Studies in ancient coinage in honor of Anndrew Burnett, Spink, London, 2015.

Only 2 specimens of this type are cited in the above article. Third was in P. Gysen's collection, so this is apparently only the 3rd known specimen in the world !!!

Provenance: Jesus Vico Mail Auction 147 lot 3234 = ex Giovanni Dattari collection
