Note Not a complete listing. Coin 1 (P 2902) is overstruck on a coin of Nero (traces of head, r., on rev.; if not a coin of Teos, as RPC I, 2516, perhaps one of Laodicea, as RPC I, 2917). The overstriking (cf. 1043/4 in Winterthur), as well as the die Axis: and the similarity to coins of Domitian, suggests that the coin perhaps belongs to his reign as a smaller denomination.
