Note Inscriptions completed from the new /3; also radiate bust on cuirass rather than aegis. See 2221A for a new coin of Euippe with a similar radiate bust on the cuirass. III, 2342, alliance of Nysa and Laodicea, was included with the coins of Laodicea, but is probably of Nysa, in view of the similarity of the obverse.
