maridvnvm Posted January 2 · Member Share Posted January 2 One of my collecting areas of focus is the bronze coinage of Probus from Lugdunum . The coins from the 5th Emission, created to celebrate the successful return of Probus through the city after a campaign in Gaul, introduced the more elaborate bust types. Many of these bust types are commonplace from other mints but not so from Lugdunum. I obtain them whenever I the confluence of them appearing on the market and their price allows. I hope that 2023 allows me to add a couple more but I am very happy to add this one. Probus Obv:– IMP C M AVR PROBVS P F AVG, Radiate, helmeted, cuirassed bust left, holding spear and shield Rev:– MARS VICTOR, Mars walking right, holding spear and trophy Minted in Lugdunum (II) Emission 5 Officina 2.
