Note The readings are uncertain. The attribution to Nicomedia seems certain on the basis of the monogram. The attribution to the proconsulship of Firmus is based on the form of the monogram, which is found only on his coins. On the other hand, the same obv. type is found on coins of Mindius Balbus (2079).
