Note 3609-19. F. Kovacs, Essays in Honour of Roberto Russo, eds P. van Alfen and R.B. Witschonke, Numismatica Ars Classica, Zurich / London, 2013, pp. 397-404, plausibly suggests that the dates on the civic bronze coinage of Eusebeia are according to a Pompeian era, rather than the regnal years of Archelaus.
