A small-size barbarous radiate copying an issue of Victorinus (AD 269-271) dating to c. AD 269-271. Reece period 13. Reverse: copying INVICTVS, Sol advancing left holding whip and raising right hand. However, on this example Sol advances right, presumably a die-engraver error in forgetting that the image would be reversed on the coin. Prototype Gallic mint, Normanby no. 1412.
