There's a version of Hr-J 6.14.8.4 and Varbanov 784 that has only AYSTINIA not AYSTINIANOY (I have one, but see Doug Smith's superior example, from https://www.cointalk.com/threads/coinage-of-marcianopolis.255927/):

Definitely not handsome, but this coin (AE29, 12.19g, mag. Quintilianus) is apparently a new variant on Hr-J 6.19.46.3-7 representing Serapis in a tetrastyle temple, this time with the value-mark E to the right of the temple:

On inspection I think there's a Ploutos on Tyche Euposia's arm in this Auspex example as well:

That's a pretty rare specimen you have; infant Ploutos is also visible though not noted on the different reverse die (also Auspex) of Pfeiffer, Markianopolis 13.

Jochen, I admire your tenacity in preparing addenda for the several Hristova & Jekov (and related) publications.

I've seen a couple of references to a second edition of H-J Marcianopolis including a 2012 edition.  Numiswiki does not currently appear to have details about different editions, citing only its 2014 publication. My edition is from 2007, which is likely the first edition. 

The Markianopolis updates trailed off in 2017.  Is there somewhere else I should be looking for updates? I saw one reference to "Coin Project,"  but that does not resonate with me. 

Numiswiki makes reference to four books in the series.  My only other H-J publication is Serdica
1. H-J Serdica (2007)
2. H-H-J Nikopolis (2015)
3. H-J Marcianopolis (2014)
4. H-J Nicopolis ad Nestum (2007)

I welcome any clarity on the series that you care to share.

Dear Chris!

In their series "The Coins of Moesia inferior I-III c.A.C", Prof. Jekov and Prof. Hristova have undertaken to publish a monograph of all Roman mints located in present-day Bulgaria. The numbering system of their catalogues is also geared to this.
Sadly, Nina Hristova died in May 2017. I had the honour of working with them since 2007. Initially I had also worked on Markianopolis, but then limited myself to Nikopolis ad Istrum, where I am co-author.

The following mints are involved:
(1) Augusta Trajana
(2) Anchialos
(3) Apollonia Pontika
(4) Deultum
(5) Dionysopolis
(6) Markianopolis
(7) Mesambria
(8) Nicopolis ad Istrum
(9) Nicopolis ad Nestum
(10) Odessos
(11) Pautalia
(12) Serdica
(13) Philippopolis

To date, the following volumes have been published:
(5) Dionysopolis 2003 Bulgarian Softcover
(6) Markianopolis 2014 Bulgarian Hardcover
(7) Mesambria 2020 Bulgarian Hardcover
(8) Nkipolis ad Istrum 2021 English Hardcover
(9) Nicopolis ad Nestum 2007 Bulgarian Hardcover
(12) Serdika 2007 Bulgarian Hardcover

The most comprehensive work is Nikopolis ad Istrum with an enormous number of types, which seem to have no end, and which therefore regularly appears in new editions. Whether Prof.Jekov intends to do the same with the other mints, I do not know.
In any case, the softcover edition of Dionysopolis  differs from the hardcover editions in its numbering system and its layout. Whether it will be published again as hardcover edition, I do not know either.

With kind regards
Jochen
