MINTMARK VARIETY. Specimen similar to SISCIA 110 except for dot (dots?) in m.m. Note, however, crude style and lettering and errors in legends. Note also style similarity with SISCIA 119 (unique example with two dots in m.m.; cf. picture 119 on plate 13). Officina letter not quite certain. Probably an ancient imitation.
