-; Varbanov -; AMNG I/1 - (but see 1227 = RPC Online temp. no. 4337 for coin of Pius probably from the same rev. die). Good VF, green patina. Unpublished and far superior to the seemingly unique coin of Pius with the same reverse, allowing for a dismissal of Pick's suggestion that the figure may be Nike.
