Note The unique coin of Vespasian attributed to Pompeipolis by Levante, and accepted as such in RPC, is in fact a coin of Pessinus (?). The entry should be deleted from RPC II. The reverse legend was read as ΠΟΜΠΗΙΟΠΟ[ ], but ΕΠΙ Ν can be read before ΠΟΜΠΗ[ ], and the similarity of reverse type with 1627 makes it likely that the Levante coin is another specimen of RPC 1627. The obv. legend reads in fact ΚΑΙΣΑΡΙ ΣΕΒΑΣ ΟΥΕΣΠΑΣΙΑΝ[W]
