Note See the similar design for years 11 (where, however, the figure on the l. might perhaps be male (A Dem 983), and lacks the billowing drapery characteristic of Isis Pharia) and 20. Bust type probable, not certain. Christiansen, RCA p. 177 adds: V, A, and NY, but we could not find them: perhaps a confusion with Isis Pharia and Pharos, since that design is present in all three collections (see above).
