UNLISTED ISSUE OR MINTMARK VARIETY. Specimen similar to SISCIA 160 except for the different mintmark: VI in left field instead of middle field and officina letter in middle field instead of exergue.

Note error on rev.: IV instead of VI. Note also that this coin could be regarded as a mintmark variety, not as a separate issue. Otherwise, should be listed after SISCIA 188.
