UNLISTED ISSUE, HYBRID. RIC does not list issue with mintmark pattern PAR. However, Bruun mentions in footnotes few coins with irregular m.m. QAR, •SAR•, PAR (cf. p. 261, 263). Probably most coins with m.m. PAR should be regarded as ancient imitations. But some of them may belong to the official unlisted issue.

Hybrid. Apparently an ancient imitation.
