Description
O: TI  CAESAR  DIVI  AVG  F  AVGVSTVS; Laureate head facing right.

R: PONTIF  MAXIM; Livia [as Pax], seated right, holding olive branch and scepter.

RSC #16, RIC #3, Sear RCV #1763, [3.73g, 19mm, 6h].

This is an early striking from the mint at Lugdunum [based on the simple legs of  Livia's chair]. This is the commonly accepted type coin from the story in Mark 22:17-21. Old scratches on obverse do not detract from the character of this popular Christian coin type.
