Note Specimen 5 is clearly a retrograde year 4, suggesting that the entry should be transferred there, D1093 and DS7208 (both assigned to Trajan by D, and followed by Emmett 695.04) look like L Δ, also. /1-2 need to be checked, since the the I recorded on the obverse of /2 indicates the reign of Hadrian. It is possible that two different issues have been conflated.
