UNLISTED ISSUE. Specimen similar to those from ROMA 74-89b (p. 359-360). See footnote 2 on p. 359: "These common coins have been studied and recorded with insufficient care. It appears that there were examples (of which Vienna contains a number) without any officina-letter—a separate issue, or result of error in engraving ?". Judging from quantity, "separate issue" is probably a better guess.
