Comments

The exact lettering of the surrounding legend may vary.

The vast majority of Aureus and Quinarius pieces from the Uncertain Germanic tribes are either holed or have a suspension loop attached. This implies that, while these were coins, these imitations were mainly meant for jewelry rather than to be spent.
