I just added another Victorinus’ heroic bust to my collection, it’s an upgrade since I exchange my only one; this one is in better shape and well centered. I didn’t find an explanation on the reason why the Trier mint struck that type of bust with the PAX AVG reverse. It is from the third issue and correspond to late 269 AD to mid 270. The siege of Autumn happened during the fall of 269 and concluded in the summer of the next year (270 AD). A special issue with the reverse PAX and INVICTVS was minted just after the victory, but I don’t understand why the heroic bust « edition » would have been done right in the middle of the attack of the city. Maybe a way to honor Victorinus the conqueror, a propaganda to encourage the troops before the final assault ? Only 13 of those coins were found in the Cunetio Hoard and only the BM owns two of them in its collection. Here it is : IMP C VICTORINVS PF AVG / PAX AVG Radiated heroic bust with drapery on shoulder Trier 3.24g 21mm Cunetio 2529 AGK 14c Mairat 587 IT WOULD BE FUN TO SEE YOUR HEROIC BUSTS. PLEASE SHOW THEM !
