Description

Revue numismatique - Année 1973 - Volume 6 - Numéro 15 - Pages 166-168
Revue numismatique, 6e série, XV, 1973, pp. 166-168. Norman Shiel, The OPES legend on coins of Carausius. ■ — The legend OPES IVI AVG on an aureus of Carausius, together with the style of that coin, have caused it to be dismissed as a copy by some scholars. An antoninianus has recently come to light, which is of similar style and bears a similar reverse legend and type. It seems that neither coin is a copy. This legend and type fit perfectly well into the overall context of ' Rouen ' issues and is the sort of propaganda to be expected in such circumstances.
