Juno standing left in round distyle temple, corn ears in right hand, globe in left
* in right field
20mm x 21mm, 3.14g
RIC IV, Part III, 176 (Trebonianus Gallus)

Note: RIC only lists 176 (R2) with a star in the field for this reverse legend, but the type is Juno seated in tetrastyle temple with peacock. RIC lists 177 (R2) as Juno with corn ears and globe, but she is seated (temple style not described) and no star in field. Richard Beale, avid collector of Roman coins during this period, notes " I'm pretty sure this type is the normal (but quite rare) RIC 176. There is a picture of one in the Eauze Hoard plates. I have seen others too, and they are all distyle and described as RIC 176. RIC 177 isn't a Temple type - it only shows Juno seated - there is a picture of it on my Volusian Rome antoninianus page (it's under issue 3):

http://sonic.net/~rbeale/mysite/Volusian%20Rome.htm

There are also a few different types of the Juno temple antoninianii on that page too under Issue-2a. When I read RIC, it is certainly ambiguous when it says "as above but star in r. field" under RIC 176. I think they are referring to the bold entry above (RIC 171) and not RIC 175, but I am only guessing that because all the coins I've seen are the distyle type so RIC isn't perfectly clear. I consider this coin to be the normal RIC 176, but that RIC did a poor job of making it clear."
