Note The obverse legend points towards Cius (see RPC 1054-1056) and the reverse is similar to RPC 1056. The flan of 6570/2 was hammered, the monogram PE faintly added in the field to make think of a contorniate, the obverse legend altered (6570/1 and 2 are certainly from the same obv. die), both sides tooled.
