Also Guadán 68 (=cmk 26) (not verified). Imitations: New speciments have been recorded that attest the existence of imitations. In addition to the published piece RPC S2-I-273/135, with the reverse legend V I C[EL] / (retrograde L) (retgrogradeB)AGGIO / [MN FESTO] / II VIR, from coll. Cores, we know a second one kept in the SIAM coll. (Valencia) 5/12040, 10.47 (= Hurtado 832), with the legends and the bull inverted; also a third one with the portrait and obverse legend inverted and the reverse legend with mistakes, from the Villaronga coll. These mistakes as well as the crude artistic quality suggest they are imitations.
