FAKE – This false aureus is obviously a free copy of the coin offered in the Bank Leu sale 52, 1991, lot. 275, now with a star on the reverse. It surely is by the same die-cutter as, among many other things, the Licinius aureus which is illustrated on the cover of BoC 1/1, 1986. The on the reverse never occurs on aurei of this empress.
