Note Imhoof-Blumer (on the ticket under the coin) suggested Elaea. The Plankenhorn specimen is apparently from the same dies. This new coin suggests that the reverse may read KAICAP CEBACTOC. Maybe more legend before (TI BPITANNIKOC KAICAP CEBACTOC suggested by D. Spangle).
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
