Note The word ΓΕΡΜΑ(Ν) is usually illegible. The forms Ɛ and Ϲ are also frequently found in rev. legends (e.g. 2-3). First published by H.P. Borrell, NC 1846, p. 20. Pera, Homonoia p. 29. Franke & Nollé give obv. legend as ΔΟΜΙΤΙΑΝΟΣ ΚΑΙΣΑΡ ΣΕΒΑ ΓΕΡΜΑ ΑΥΓ, but this is implausible, and anyway ΑΥΤΟ with a T rather than a Γ seems clear on BMC 142 and 141.
