Note The legends on the coin looks as if they have been altered, presumably from a normal coin such as 1070. This false coin in Mu has now been published by D.O.A. Klose, ‘Münz- oder Gruselkabinett?’, in Internationales Kolloquium zur kaiserzeitlichen Münzprägung Kleinasiens, Nomismata I (1997), pp. 254-60, at p. 257.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
