Note It is very strange that this coin does not mention the name of the mint; in addition, the rev. legend is unique in Roman Spanish cities and belongs to Colonia Romula (RPC 73). There is also a problem with the Latinon the obverse. Not seen and confirmationneeded: it may be a tooled or false coin.
