She interprets this coins as a half denomination corresponding to RPC 642-3, which can therefore be safely identified as Tiberius and Livia. -- See Martini, Sicilia nos. 326-94, with more countermarks. -- On coin 32, the two ears of corn are clear on ‘Livia/Demeter’ head on the reverse.Reverse legend upwards l. or r.
