Tetricus II (Barbarous imitation)
Struck / Cast:
C P... RICVS CA
Radiate bust of Tetricus II right. Barbarous inscription which starts with C P and ends with RICVS CA. The youthful non-bearded portrait clearly shows this is intended to be Tetricus II, not Tetricus I.
Salus standing left; SAL at the beginning and GG at the end of the inscription readable.
EF, irregular flan.
Barbarous imitatives like this are generally from the Northern frontier regions of the Roman Empire, including Britian. Tetricus II was Caesar from from AD 273 to 274, but these imitatives may date any time from then to slightly later in the 3rd century
