Note: This specimen was difficult to attribute because the obverse symbol
is off the flan. The reverse ΣI symbol narrows down the search.
Style-wise, this example resembles MSP 379.

Note #1: The dealer mis-attributed this coin as Samnium, Aesernia.

Note #2: On the obverse of this example, there is a symbol at right. That symbol
is probably a Σ. There is a remote possibility that it is a retrograde letter K.
