Description

The Triumvirs, Marc Antony, 39 BC
Silver Quinarius, Traveling Mint in Gaul, 16mm, 1.65 grams
Obverse: III VIR R P C, Veiled and diademed head of Concordia right.
Reverse: M ANTON C CAESAR, Clasped hands holding caduceus.
RSC 57 // Crawford 529/4b // Sydenham 1195   Struck for the Second Triumvirate between Marc Antony, Octavian and Lepidus, the obverse reads as The Three Men Regulating the Republic. The image of Concordia is obviously alluding to harmony between the three rulers. The clasped hands symbolize peace and harmony, the caduceus commerce. The quinarius was not particularly issued in large numbers, and one can speculate that it was issued and used only where needed locally.
