UNLISTED ISSUE. 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.

Good style and lettering, but possibly an ancient imitation.

NOTES

Weight 3.247 g.; diameter 18 mm. Coin sold on eBay in January 2011 for $285.76.
