This unlisted variant could be a mistake in which the LI appears as a N. Like the HZ variant, the letters LI were probably badly formed on the original document; then the engravers made the confusion with and N (Fig. 63-64). -- Coins of Pontius Pilate by J. P. Fontanille and S. L. Gosline

Pontius Pilate is chiefly known for the part he played in the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. Scholars disagree on the date of this type. If the "S" is actually a retrograde (backward) "Z," the date is year 17 or 30 A.D. If the "S" is actually the Greek letter stigma, the date is year 16 or 29 A.D.
