UNLISTED ISSUE. Not attested for the sub-group (iv). The specimen is similar to ANTIOCHIA 163b except for star in exergue instead of left field. Note, however, that it could be also an engraver's error. For correct description of rev. of ANTIOCHIA 163b see CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 642.

Coin should be listed after ANTIOCHIA 170c.
