Note The reading of the rev. legend given here follows that of KM, though it does not seem absolutely certain; similarly, some doubt attaches to the interpretation of ΑΙ (if that is what it says) as year 11 (= AD 30/1), in the absence of ΕΤΟΥϹ, but coin 10 confirms that AI is a date. 2 obv. and 2 rev. dies.
