Note BMC 3040a was attributed to ‘Antoninus?’, and attributed to year 6 (whence its inclusion in RPC IV online, temporary number 15819 where it is described as ‘date obscure’). P1094 is attributed to year 13.The design occurs on several coins attributed to Trajan of years 16-18. A Γ does seem likely on both coins, and ΙΓ seems possible on the P coin: hence its inclusion here. But it is not very certain, and both coins catalogued here might be coins of year 16 or 17 (P1094 looks most like L ΙΖ). Confirmation required
