[CONFIRMATION]. RIC cites for this variety (with AVG in rev. legend instead of AVGG and rev. legend break E-R instead of R-V) unique specimen from Delos Hoard (p. 706). However, in footnote Bruun mentions: "Because of Svoronos's principles of recording there is no absolute guarantee of the correctness of the wording of the rev. legend. Kent, 'Pattern', no. 1206a, lists a similar coin".
