Note EP above Nero's head. Their significance is unclear; unless they are actually EΦ[E], as on 2631 (though oddly repeated from the reverse); less plausibly perhaps they might be [Σ]EΒ[Α], but there is no trace of the sigma, and Ephesus does not use this title for Nero. The letters around the reverse design are not legible, but presumably are the same as on 2626-7 etc, referring to the proconsul Aviola and to Aichmokles.
