Seleucis and Pieria. Antioch. Nero. As Caesar, 50-54 AD. AR Didrachm (7.34 gm, 12h). Bare-headed and draped bust right / DIDRACMON, simpulum and lituus. RPC I 4171; Prieur 70; SNG Copenhagen 375 (Ephesus). Good VF, light porosity. Excellent portrait of the young Nero

Apparently the first didrachm struck at Antioch, and marked with the denomination to aid in identification. Whatever the reason for the introduction of the denomination, it proved a failure; two other types were struck early in Nero's reign, and then the didrachm disappeared.
