Note Grant's attribution to Malta is just a guess; he used the coin to posit the existence of a colony there. The date of the coins (which are probably genuine) is also uncertain. The names are no use in indicating an attribution; even in this catalogue alone, Tadii are known at Utica and Cnossus, and Marii at Babba and in Spain (Calagurris and Turiaso).
