Ex Harlan Berk

Notes on the Berk tag: Strack 453 is clearly right to say peacock standing on scepter, since the knobs at the ends of the scepter are clearly rendered e.g. on the aureus BM-471 pl. 10-10 and on the present denarius. Cohen, followed by RIC and BMC, says peacock walking r., misinterpreting the scepter as a groundline.
