NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Not attested in RIC VI. Specimen similar to SISCIA 135a except for obv. legend: ...NOB C AVG (which is quite nonsensical) instead of ...NOB CAES. In fact this coin is a modern forgery.

Note that this reverse also appears on forgery of another "unlisted variety". See SISCIA [after 152] [FORGERY].

NOTES

Diameter 27 mm. From FAC "Fake Coin Reports".
