The rev. legend is difficult to read and it has an unusual short name for Gaetulicus. Pick writes: "Postolakkas thought to read on the ex. from Athens IOVL(I/G)ET (I/G ligate) and intended to read that as IOVLIANov GETovlikov; but the line which seems to connect I and G is caused only by a die break going throug the dot; the ex. from Paris shows the same phenomenon." And I can add: And my coin too!
