Macedonia Prima Merida (First Region), Roman Dependent Republic, c. 168 - 149 B.C.
This type was minted with Artemis' age ranging from childhood to maturity. "Artemis is presented as ageless in the sense that she is every age. These coins were all struck at the same time and the same place as hoard evidence verifies." -- Wayne Sayles, "Ancient Coin Collecting III, Numismatic Art of the Greek World"SH38445.

Roman Republic, Spurius Furius, c. 155 - 120 B.C.
Sydenham notes of his 371, "The as and triens with the name L. FVRI, quoted by Babelon (i, p. 523) from Riccio, are suspect, the legends having most probably been altered. Crawford identifies both S. FVRI and L. FVRI as modern forgeries (p. 549, note 47). We believe this coin is ancient, not a modern forgery.RR47799.
