Note The single specimen is very worn and requires confirmation. Dattari seems to have read the date as LΚ Δ from the coin as he drew the numerals on to the rubbing in DS. M. Torre has inspected the coin and confirmed that he thinks this reading to be correct. The reverse type is otherwise securely attested in years 19 and 22.
