Vespasian Æ Dupondius, 11.39g Lyon mint, 72 AD Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIAN AVG COS IIII; Head of Vespasian, radiate, r.; globe at point of bust Rev: PAX AVG; S C in field; Pax stg. l., with patera over altar and branch and caduceus RIC 191 (C2). BMC 816. BNC 817. Ex CNG E463, 11 March 2020, lot 360. A common early Pax type struck in 72 unique to Lyon. H. Mattingly in BMCRE writes 'The type of Pax sacrificing, which is peculiar to Lugdunum, conveys the thought of thanksgiving for peace and prosperity (cp. the caduceus held by Pax) restored.' At Rome a similar variant was produced sans altar. The propaganda value of Pax for the new Flavian dynasty after the Civil War and Jewish Rebellion cannot be underestimated. The style is unabashedly early Lugdunese - blocky portrait with a heavy brow. Please post your coins of gods or goddesses actually doing something.
