UNLISTED ISSUE OR DIE ERROR. Coin similar to SISCIA 165a except for absence of mark "VI" in left field. Probably clogged die, because the slight trace of letter "V" is still visible between club and Hercules' leg. Note also error in obv. legend: CONTANTIVS instead of CONSTANTIVS.

NOTES

Weight 8.81 g. Coin sold on eBay in November 2007 for $58.57.
