Cuirassed and draped bust right, thraces of three letters (DNV...) / No inscriptions, a large chi-rho. 8mm, 0.4 grams.A superb and rare coin - quite exceptional and the nicest one of this type we have encountered. The attribution is relatively tentative - I've encountered one other specimen with a fairly clear VAL... within the inscription before. Perhaps the nicest specimen of these in existance, not in RIC.
