Lot description:

The Roman Republic
Struck Coinage
P. Licinius Nerva

Triens 113 or 112, Æ 8.57 g. Helmeted bust of Minerva r.; before, P·NERVA and behind, four pellets. Rev.
Prow r.; before, [four pellets] and below, ROMA. Babelon Licinia 9. Sydenham 549a. Crawford 292/3.

Apparently unique. Wonderful green patina and very fine
Privately purchased from S. Bendall in October 1990.
We have described this coin as unique since, in our opinion, the specimen of the Fénelon-Farez collection, cited by Babelon is a forgery.
I first met Simon Bendall at Baldwin’s, in London in the 1970s. We remained friends as he moved to NFA in Los Angeles, Harlan Berk in Chicago, and finally back to London. He has found some very important coins for me. (RBW)
