Browsing Roman Imperial Coins of Postumus


Cologne and Lyons issued coins with seemingly identical obverses and reverses. Lyons coins have more (and curlier) hair above the brow and especially at the temples, his smile is a little more pronounced and his beard has a bit more detail.

Postumus, first emperor of the breakaway Gallic Empire, 260-269 AD.
