"TIAV" on Nero Claudius Drusus Sestertius, minted under Claudius. (countermark Martini Pangerl Collection 54)
TIAV is commonly read as "Tiberius Claudius Augustus".
"Claudius" would thus be missing from the countermark, and the
would show on almost uncirculated coins of Claudius.
Another maybe more likely possibility would be to move the time of use to Titus (TIAV = Titus Augustus). In parallel NCAPR commonly seen as Neronian is possibly from Nerva's reign.
