Augustus.  Issue of 2 BC to 4 AD.

Denomination : Silver Denarius. Mint : Lugdunum.  Reference : Sear-1597.

Size : 17.5 x 19.3 mm. Weight : 3.81 grams.

Grade : VF

Obverse : Head of Augustus right, with CAESAR AVGVST DIVI F PATER PATRIAE around (the very first and last letters are in part off the flan).

Reverse : Gaius and Lucius standing forward with spears and shields between them, a simpula and lituus above,  and C L CAESARES AVGVSTI F COS DESIG PRINC IVVENT around.

This type commemorates Gaius and Lucius as Augustus' heirs.  However they pre-deceased him, and never became Emperors.  This type is rarely seen with the entire inscription on flan.  This particular specimen is very nearly full inscriptions.
