UNLISTED REVERSE. Not attested for Antioch but cf. footnote 28 on p. 680: "In L., however, a very curious hybrid, PROVIDENTIAE CAESS, Jupiter stg. l., obv. 5 [D N FL IVL CRISPVS NOB CAES] (B4), m.m. . The rev. is otherwise exclusively Nicomedian [cf. NICOMEDIA 31-36] and was probably brought to and coined in Antioch in error". Coin should be listed after ANTIOCH 25.
