Note Confirmation required. The type is otherwise known for years 12-13, although there is no intrinsic reason why it should not appear for either year 11 or year 14. Dattari 157 was read as L ΙΕ, but there are no coins attested for that year. Neither RPC 5197 or 5198 is very convincing but 5199 seems to secure coinage in year 14. 2021: 5197/2 has now been moved to 5182A (year 11).
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
