On this reverse die it would be very easy to mistake the sideways Μ for a Σ and to ignore the Α below it that could be taken as part of the cart. The clear letters Μ and Α on the next coin 119.14 were a help towards the correct description of this reverse.

Rogers 196, fig. 81 corr. [the coin illustrated in Rogers did not help him to identify it properly as the Α on its obv. is off flan and the condition of the reverse made him see ΚΡ above l. on the rev. instead of one of the other letters that occur in the varieties of this issue]; see also Helios 6 (9 March 2011) 491 (same dies). Good VF, dark olive green patina, die flaw in front of horse’s head.
