This issue sees the first appearance of the four standard Minerva reverse types. The coin is deeply toned with a very thin flan, which may explain the low weight. No signs of broken plating although that may still be a possibility.

Stylistically this coin resembles some others of this type but without the legend errors. The fabric is similar to those from Antioch. Is this an ancient imitation or perhaps an apprentice cut the legend? Or is it an unknown type from Antioch?
