Vienne is in south-eastern France, 20 miles (32 km) south of Lyon, on the Rhone River. Before the arrival of the Roman armies under Julius Caesar, Vienne was the capital city of the Allobroges. RPC misspells the name, Vienna.
The denomination struck at Vienne was a dupondius and the type was frequently halved to make two asses. RP88134.

Augustus and Agrippa, 16 - 15 B.C., Nemausus, Gaul
This two-headed brass dupondius was commonly cut between the heads, creating two individual one-as coins.

Augustus and Agrippa, c. 9 - 3 B.C., Colonia Augusta Nemausus, Southern Gaul
