Die-links 6: same obv. die as 513/1.
Note Cahn also attributes BMCRE 274 to this group, but it looks more like a Rome mint coin. The ticket under BMCRE 272 says that it is from the same dies as Hall and Walters, and from the same rev. die as Spink, Aug. 1991. Carradice and Cowell (NC 1987, p. 34) imply that BMCRE 277 (incorrectly listed in their table as BMCRE 276) is also from this group, but this seems doubtful. -- Corr: Given to 'Flavian mint in Thrace' in RPC II, but attributed to Rome in RIC II (2nd ed.).
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
