I am not sure why anyone even cites Mcalee except for copy and paste or reference overload. This is the book The Coins of Roman Antioch. If you don’t have it yet, don’t bother getting it because you think it might have some information on these coins, it seems to include the pagan civic coins as an afterthought and then only a few examples-- I have included a scan of the entire section below.
I had not looked at the supplement, which I just looked up. It references a prior coin sold by CGB, which can be as easily referenced as an online supplement. Lech also has a page for it-- http://www.notinric.lechstepniewski.info/6ant_civ_4v.html
