Note Obverse legend might also be CO VE or CO ΛE. The following small silver coins (hemiobols?) are signed by quatuorvirs of a latin colony in the Provincia Transalpina/Narbonensis in the 40's or 30's BC. However, this colony, if its name is to be represented by CO(lonia) NE[ , VE[ or ΛE[ , can hardly be identified with Nemausus or any other known triumviral foundation, except if one of the latter had received the epithet Neronis, after the name of Tiberius Claudius Nero, Caesar's legate and deductor of colonies in the Province, which is not attested.
