Note If this is a palm-branch, as expected, it is rendered in an unusual fashion (cf https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/69855; https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/25443). The reading of the date is not certain, and might be L Ι or L ΙΑ. The reverse type is paralleled for both years. One obverse die is otherwise known only for year 10, the other otherwise only for year 11.
