UNLISTED REVERSE TYPE. RIC lists issue with Genius stg. l. [OSTIA 73-78] and without tripod altar to l. (p. 408). However, Sutherland mentions in footnote 3 on p. 408 that "Maur. [Maurice, Numismatique constantinienne] i, p. 284 (type II) cites from Voett. a doubtful coin with tripod in field to l.". Coin should be listed after OSTIA 78.
