Note Formerly RPC 6546 (uncertain). This coin was tentatively attributed to Iotape by E. Levante, ‘Cilician coinage – Iotape’, NC 151 (1991), pp. 209-12 and pl. 39-40 (Levante 1). But this seems unlikely. The new coin /2 suggests the reading as now given, but confirmation required.

Addition Additional coin-type (post publication)
