Note The design is not absolutely clear: 'Harpokrates in piede a d.; porta skhent, l'indice della d. alla bocca , il gomito s. appoggiato ad una colonna che gli sia davanti, sulla quale tiene chlamys e cornucopiae' (Dattari). The year is not clear on either D 498 or D 499, but Dattari is followed here, in view of the other Harpokrates coins from the same year.
