Note There is also a coin in Rec, described by FITA 253 (18) as having the same obv. and on the rev. an 'altar in wreath': this sounds very similar to the vase in wreath on Rec 90a, and the coin is therefore not given a separate entry here. —— Reverse type may be an altar rather than a vase.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
