Orichalcum Sestertius struck during the reign of the Emperor Nero between 54 and 68 AD probably in about 66, Ancient Roman Empire. Minted by Lugdunum. Sutherland (RIC p.180) places this issue in his Issue IV from Lugdunum, the mint being marked by the small globe at the point of the neck truncation on the coin's obverse. He associates this issue with Issue V from the Rome mint and suggests the date circa 66 AD.
