Note Imhoof, in AgM, describes the reverse legend as Π ΠƐΛΑΓΟΝΤΟϹ Π (l.) – ΑΝΗΓΥΡΙΑΡΧ ΑΠΑΜƐ (r.), Ω–Ν (in field). The Munich coin does not allow to verify this reading, because the reverse legend is almost completely illegible. It has nevertheless been listed here, given that a) the type description fits the one given by Imhoof and b) its obverse die is characteristic of the issue signed by the panegyriarch Pelagon (see https://rpc.ashmus.ox.ac.uk/type/68183).
