VERY rare AE2 of Leo (457-474 AD) w/SALVS RPVRLCA, Cherson mint, Roman Empire (RIC 663)

VERY rare AE2 of Leo (457-474 AD) w/SALVS RPVRLCA, Cherson mint, Roman Empire (RIC 663)

DN LEO P-RPET AG, Leo facing right,/ SALVS R-PVRLCA, Emperor standing right, holding standard and globe, treading down on a prostrate captive, CON in exergue. 20mm, 3.92 grams. Cherson mint. RIC 663.

These AE2's carry the mintmark of Constantinopolis, but were probably struck in Cherson, Crimea. They are all rare - The small size of the whole issue is evident from the fairly small number of dies that were used. The coins can be conveniently divided into two different group - VIRTVS EXRCITI (always mis-spelled), and the second group with a reverse inscription SALVS REIPVBLICAE.
