I 517A Gallia Narbonensis Gaul Vienne 30-25 BC Leaded bronze (28 mm) Octavian IMP DIVI F bare head of Octavian, r. C I V prow with superstructure, r. 517A/1 belonged to de Saulcy and was first published by L. de la Saussaye, Numismatique de la Gaule Narbonnaise (1842), p. 129 no. 3 and pl. XV. It is briefly mentioned by A. Pelletier, Vienne antique (1982) p. 37 n. 3, but obviously Pelletier thought the coin might be a modern forgery. Metal analysis by neutron absorption reveals the presence of a high percentage of antimony (1.42%), which is the characteristic of the metal used by coins of Vienne. As the portrait of Octavian conforms to the style of his other portraits on Gallic issues, this coin, though curious, is probably genuine. A date of c. 30-25 is proposed517A/2 surfaced recently in a private collection, from different dies. This coin was also analysed by the Centre E. Babelon at Orléans and the results are coherent with the analysis performed on 517A/1. 1 Lyon M.

I 5416 Uncertain Uncertain Uncertain Bronze (29 mm) Augustus bare head of Augustus, r. prow with superstructure, r. FITA 82–4 Original comment: "This series of rare bronze coins raises problems of interpretation. It was assigned to Gaul by Sydenham (NG I9I7, p. 58) and to a date of c. 40-38 BC. But Grant, FITA, pp. 82-3, easily disproved this early date: Augustus's portrait indicates that these bronzes are post-Actian. It remains to determine the mint. The discovery of one specimen (5416/5) in the neighbourhood of Istanbul, and supposed stylistic similarities with Macedonian issues, led Grant to propose a Macedonian series ordered by M. Antonius Primus, proconsul of the province in 23 BC (FITA, pp. 83-4). This solution, however, seems highly implausible, and it is better to return to a Gallic mint for the following reasons: (I) the form of the prow with superstructure is paralleled at Copia (5I4-I5), Vienna (5I7) andArausio? (533); (2) a second provenance is now recorded: specimen 54I6/7 was bought in Lyon before I910. Even if Grant did not see any of these coins among the 847 Augustan Gallic aes he examined in the south of France, the mere fact that three coins are in the P collection favours a Gallic origin; (3) the double-bevelled edge of the present series and the careful die-setting at twelve o'clock recall the C. I. V. issue (517). Therefore a Gallic mint is suggested here, and a date of c. 30-25 BC.Three unpublished analyses reveal that these coins are made of bronze (91% of copper+ 6% of tin and 3% of lead). The denomination struck was probably an as, but the series of Arausio (?) (533), which has exactly the same weight, is considered by Amandry as a dupondius (GENE, April-June 1986, pp. 21-34)." A Gallic mint was favoured by the printed volume of RPC I (1992), but Richard Ashton points out some provenances that suggest Asia is also a possibility. Although 5416/7 was bought in Lyon, 5416/5 was found near Istanbul; two new specimens come from Turkey (12-13) and one other has a Balkan provenance (14). 11 Lyon Argenor 4, 27 Apr. 2001, lot 100 21.59 29 12 1 no no no https://www.coinarchives.com/a/openlink.php?l=100|1|100|f2fc990265c712c49d51a18a32b39f0c [show] [edit]
