Die-links 1: same obv. die as 3317/1, 3320/1–3, 3321/2, 3351/2, 3352/1, 3365/1. 1: same rev. die as 3352/1, 4, 6.
Note Dattari read the date as L Ɛ but the rubbing in DS seems to show L Κ. Both the obverse and reverse dies seem to be the same as those used in year 19. It may be that the type was run over from year 19 to year 20 and the date recut on the reverse die.
