Note It is impossible to assign this to any particular emperor, since the portrait could represent any of them from Augustus to Trajan. We know coins of Harpasa for Domitian and Domitia (RPC 2, 1214-5), which have a similar lettering and general ap- pearance, so perhaps a later date, say in the reign of Trajan, is possible.
