UNLISTED REVERSE TYPE. RIC lists similar type with Hercules stg. r. and holding apples instead of Victory [OSTIA 79]. But cf. ROMA 298-300 on p. 387. See also footnote 1 on p. 409 to OSTIA 79: "Maur. [Maurice] cites from Berlin a similar coin (off. P) with Hercules stg. l.: confirmation required". Apparently Maurice cited this specimen. Coin should be listed after OSTIA 79.
