    Description

    Nero, A.D. 54-68. Two orichalcum dupondii of Nero, both minted at Lugdunum. One reverse is Victory flying left (Fine+), the other shows Securitas seated right (Fine+/Good, porous).
    The dupondius was worth two asses, and normally exhibits an obverse radiate or rayed portrait. On these two Seventko examples, the emperor is laureate. Nero's copper-alloy coinage is complex, utilizing both orichalcum and copper for the medium-sized denominations. Engravers from Lugdunum often placed a globe at the truncation of Nero's portrait to indicate place of minting.
    From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko.
