Nice coin

Very nice portrait indeed. Alfldi Type 26 No. 76 citing examples from Voetter, Venra 2437 (2 examples), Budapest and Oxford. Also worthy of note on this examples is the way in which the X is rotated to be almost a + as seems to happen occasionally with these issues. This doesn't change the attribution though.
