AVGVSTI POR OST S C - On a sestertius of Nero, bearing this legend, the reverse type represents a maritime port. The Emperor Claudius had caused some immense works to be constructed at Ostia, a town situated at the mouth of the Tiber; but Nero appears, by this coin, to have assumed all the honour of having executed them. - See POR OST.
