Note The attribution of this series to RPC VII.1 is based on von Fritze. The obverse die is apparently shared with a coin showing the name of a magistrate whithin a wreath (von Fritze, Nomisma 10 (1917), group V, no. 41b). Unfortunately, his name is not legible on the only specimen recorded by von Fritze (Grossfürst Michailowitsch coll.).
