As Imhoof-Blumer and Regling noted, ΙΕΡΕΟΥΣ is presumably a die engraver's mistake for ΙΕΡΕΥΣ. See introduction for discussion. Mention should have been made of the discussion by L. Robert, RN 1936, pp. 273-4. He suggested that Julius Antoninus might have been a known senator and benefactor of the Antonine period, and that the coin should therefore be dated to the second century; however, this does not take account of the letter forms Ε and Σ which do not occur after the Flavian period.
