REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY, ENGRAVER'S ERROR. Specimen similar to TREVERI 230a except for CAESS in rev. legend instead of AVGG. Rev. legend FORTVNAE REDVCI CAESS NN is attested only for reverse with Fortuna stg. l. It could be an unlisted reverse variety with legend ...CAESS NN and Fortuna seated l. but more probably an engraver's error.
