Reverse: "LAETITIA FVLMENNAT"
    Laetitia (Joy, Gladness) standing left, foot on prow, holding patera and rudder.

Note:   The style of this coin and its unique reverse legend suggest that it is an ancient forgery from the eastern providences.  A loose translation would be Joy to the thunderbolt thrower.  A very interesting coin.  A second specimen, from the same dies in bronze, and a third which looks to be a silvered bronze have been found.
