UNLISTED ISSUE. Coin similar to ARLES 290 except for dot in m.m. Possibly a separate issue. But see footnote 297 on p. 265: "NaH has 1 coin with ordinary m.m.; another QA[crescent]RL• (no. 177). Also 1 NaH (no. 165) Providentia augg with m.m. •SA[crescent]RL. [...] Neither of these is sufficient evidence for a sub-issue".
