UNLISTED ISSUE. Specimen similar to CYZICUS 84a except for additional dot. If the dot is not accidental, this coin may belong 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 over Genius' arm instead of left field. Coin should be listed after CYZICUS 95.
