Victorinus. Romano-Gallic Emperor, AD 269-271. Antoninianus (18mm, 3.61 g, 12h). Treveri (Trier) mint. 1st emission, AD 269. IMP C PIAVVONIVS VICTORINVS P F AVG, radiate, draped, and cuirassed bust right / Fides standing left, holding signum in each hand. RIC 116; Mairat 242-3; AGK 5a; Cunetio 2515. EF. Very rare first issue with long obverse legend.

This coin is from the first issue of Victorinus' coinage at Trier, where he was proclaimed emperor upon the death of Marius in AD 269. The issue is characterized by the long form of Victorinus' name, and the rarity of these coins suggest that the issue was very brief, perhaps only a month.
