    Nice coin. It is one of the series with officina letter in Greek numeral in the field. Mine has the B retrograde.

    The type also comes as a sestertius. This one has a die clash on the reverse.

    Very nice, I still can not grasp on how the engravers made dies with all the details especially on some of the Greek coins BC?
