Note Coin 3 allows the obv. legend to be completed: ΤΙ ΚΛΑYΔIΟΥ ΚΑΙΣΑΡΟΣ ΣΕΒΑΣΤΟΥ. The reading of the countermark GIC 611 (uncertain monogram (?), beginning Β) is certainly 'monogram ΡΚΑ', as this is now quite clear on coin https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/coin/299794.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
