When browsing the Net, I found this wonderfull coin of the late 3rd century emperor Probus.
On the obverse of the coin you can clearly see him wearing mail armour. With beneath it his subarmalis with pteryges, correct?

Regarding the reverse of the coin, we can see 2 military standards, which do look the same as in the 1st century AD. Is there evidence that those standards were still the same as some 2 centuries before or were they already using "new" style of standards like the "draco"?

When looking at 4th century coins, they still use soldiers on the reverse of some coins, wearing attic style helmets. When we do now that the attic helmets weren't in use anymore at that time, correct?
