Note Confirmation required. Formerly RPC I, 5446. The name seems to be the same as that on https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/65445, and so the coin is tentatively assigned to Hypaepa. The similarity with 2538E (formerly 5445) = https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/27346 suggests another alliance coin of Hypaepa and Sardis, although the type is more like 2988 = https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/66127 But see the original comment in RPC I, for the uncertainties.
