UNLISTED MINTMARK. Specimen similar to CYZICUS 83 except for additional dot in m.m. Probably belongs to Group (iv). See footnote 2 on p. 593: "Maurice includes an issue with GENIO AVGVSTI alone, almost certainly in error". Note that dot is below officina letter instead of left field. Coin should be listed after CYZICUS 95.
