UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Specimen similar to HERACLEA 19 except for obv. legend ended with ...CAE instead of ...C. Note also another error in rev. legend: CAES instead of CAESS. Possibly engraver's errors and coin could be regarded as an ancient imitation. Otherwise, should be listed before HERACLEA 19.
