Note The authors describe the type as ‘un homme debout tourné à dr., la g. tendue en avant, la dr. le long du corps tenant un foudre’. A man holding a thunderbolt is obviously Zeus, and the type is very close to RPC 206. The difference between RPC 206 and 206A is the obverse legend: on 206, the legend ends with – GERM. This is not obvious on the specimen illustrated pl. 8, but this specimen is struck from the same obv. die as RPC 199, whose reading is clear.
