Date : Issued between 2 BC and 4 AD.

Reference : Sear-1597.

Size : 17.5 x 19.8 mm. Weight : 3.66 grams.

Grade : gF, with two small scratches  on the reverse between the figures, and a small planchet defect just behind Augustus' eye, which is a depression with a black encrustation in it.

Obverse : Head of Augustus right, with CAESAR AVGVST DIVI F PATER PATRIAE around (the first half of the inscription is off the flan to the right).

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 (the last part of the inscription is off the flan).

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.
