UNLISTED ISSUE. Attested in Kent, but see note in RIC on p. 673: "Kent, N.C. 1957, p. 71, nos. 1171-2, includes issues of this mark with this type. They do not seem to have been recorded elsewhere, or to be in the major collections so far examined". Note, however, that it could be ALEXANDRIA 58b. Cf. footnote 1 on p. 670: "Sometimes the letters S F are omitted" and footnote 5 on the same page to ALEXANDRIA 58b: "Example of off. B in Vienna without S F". Coin should be listed after ALEXANDRIA 66.
