DN LEONI-S PF A AVG, Leo facing right / SALVS R-PVRLCA, Emperor standing right, holding standard and globe, treading down on a prostrate captive, CON in exergue. 20mm, 3.7 grams. RIC 664, very rare.A great rarity, with only a handful of other known examples. Rated R4 in RIC. This coin is an excellent example, showing the clear obverse inscription. The obverse inscription given in RIC - DN LEONI-S PFR AVG (L23) is wrong. The letter that follows PF in not R, but an A. Extremely rare and of numismatic significance (how often does one get to correct RIC? :-)
