Note The obv. of 4670/1 seems to read ΑΔΡΙΑ ϹƐΒ, indicating Hadrian. But the rev. design belongs to Trajan year 16, and the obv. bust would be wrong for Hadrian's year 16. The entry is based on a record card, which has perhaps combined the obv and rev. of two different coins. 4670/2 is illegible, but looks like Trajan.The coins need to be checked!
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
