Note The group of sestertii for Britannicus, Agrippina the Younger and young Nero, and dupondii for Agrippina the Younger and young Nero (1951-6) was mentioned in RPC I (p. 318) but omitted because at the time the RPC authors were hesitant to accept them (quite odd coins, no corresponding pieces for Claudius). Since the publication of RPC I in 1992, dozens of these coins came on the market and there is no more reason not to catalogue them. Their Balkan origin seems well attested and an attribution to Perinthus seems reasonable.See also RPC I, 1758-62 for coins of Nero with Latin legends and Roman types given to Perinthus.
