Ric 125b, Bmc 72 var. (no palm). Medium gray. Extremely Fine. 6000-8000 The Civil war issues share one important characteristic. They carry no imperial portrait, struck instead by rival claimants in opposition to the reigning emperor, whether Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius or Vespasian. The appearance of Jupiter and Vesta on this coin allude to the very core of Roman religion.
