pellet ASIS pellet in exergue
20mm, 3.40g
RIC VII, --
Ex Barry Murphy, CICF Show, April 2005

Note: pellet ASIS pellet not an attested exergual mark for the long legend reverse. The closest match is RIC VII, 65 and although some of the other examples in this series are shown with Victory's foot in the exergue, this piece clearly shows all four feet on the exergual line and the leading exergual pellet is separate. Perhaps this is a separate series and other examples where the pellet is taken for Victory's foot is also actually a pellet. More research is needed.

Note: This belongs to the series in 320 with no officinae marks where RIC attests a single example known for Crispus and two for Constantine II.
