UNLISTED LEGENDS. Specimen similar to HERACLEA 73 except for different legends: IMP VAL LICINIVS P F AVG instead of IMP C VAL LICIN LICINIVS P F AVG and CONSERVATORI AVGG instead of IOVI CONSERVATORI AVGG. These legends are not attested in RIC VI nad VII. Note also crude style and light weight. Obviously an ancient imitation.
