[CONFIRMATION]. RIC cites with correct description the very specimen from ANS collection which is shown here. Note, however, that Paolucci & Zub erroneously lists as AQULEIA 69 coin with diferent rev. type (p. 41, no. 108; from private collection). This coin is in fact rev. variety of AQUILEIA 66b (three foemen instead of two). See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 320.
