The Roman Empire
In the name of Germanicus, father of Gaius
As 37-41, Æ 11.25 g. GERMANICVS CAESAR TI AVGVST F DIVI AVG N Bare head l. Rev. C CAESAR AVG [GERMANICVS P]ON M TR POT around S C. C 1. BMC Gaius 49. RIC Gaius 35. CBN Gaius 73. A wonderful enamel-like green patina, an area of weakness on obverse
and metal flaw on reverse, otherwise about extremely fine Germanicus’ coins were mainly issued under his son Caligula and show a clear family resemblance. Again there is a high diversity in style likely due to multiple auxiliary mints. AMP.
