Note Identity of figure on rev. seems likely in view of sistrum. She also wears the characteristic head-dress of Isis. See also 2431A for a coin with the name Nemeonikos, showing that the translation given in RPC II (Nemean victor) is incorrect and the word should just be regarded as a name.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
