This new and extraordinary coin might commemorate the foundation of the colony. The name [ ] Poblici(us) is new but P. Muci(us) is presumably the same man as Muc who is named as one of the IIIIVIR on
2253-4. The formula IIIIVIR I(ure) D(icundo) is the same. What is new is QVINQ (uennales). The name of the colony C I P P must stand for Colonia Iulia Pia Pariana, Pia being appropriate for a colony founded by Caesar. The absence of G (Gemella or Gemina) is curious, but II must be some reference to Gemella/Gemina.
