Thanks rupert
Mario

mdelvalle:
An additional question   ???  
In this case  that so RIC as Cohen lists the legend of the reverse with an additional P,  how should the coin be attributed, not listed or error of coinage?
Gracias
Mario

Rupert:
IMP PP means Imperator Pater Patriae. A single P at the end makes no sense, so your coin must be read IM PP, not IMP P. IM is a very unusual abbrev. for Imperator, so I think it's an error, not an unlisted type. Anybody who knows better out there please correct me if I'm wrong.

Rupert
