Reverse: "ROMAE AETERNAE"
    Roma, in military dress, seated left, holding Victory and spear, at side, shield.

Note: This coin fills two holes in my collection.  This spot and the listing for Seaby 171a.  It appears that Seaby, in correcting Cohen's listings, created two identical entries.  RIC also has two entries for this coin, one being the footnote to 65 and the second being the entry for 106(b).  Everyone is confused with this hybrid.

Rarity:    unlisted in RIC, Bland #42, Qty. known = 4


Reverse: "ROM[delta]E AETERNAE"
    Roma, in military dress, seated left on shield, holding Victory and spear.

Note:  The engraver made an interesting error on this coin with a delta where an A should have been on the reverse. This coin is only listed in Bland with a Spear but this reverse has Roma holding a scepter like some of the Rome reverses.  Probably and ancient counterfeit although the silver looks quite good.
