Various dates have been proposed for the bronze issues of Claudius. BMCRE assigns a date of circa 42-43 AD for this issue, while RIC proposes a date of circa 50-54 AD. Recent surveys of hoards, especially those from Britain, have shown that the 'P P' title was actually added very early in Claudius' reign, perhaps within the first year or two.
