NOTES
[1] D. Vagi (1999: 568) describes a type of reverse "Ck" without rowers. We haven't found it.
[2] Lars Ramskold (No. 18): "A die link study of Constantine’s pagan Festival of Isis tokens and affiliated coin-like ‘fractions’: chronology and relation to major imperial events". Jahrbuch für Numismatik und Geldgeschichte 66, Munich, 2016. (Madrid, Museo Arqueológico Nacional).
[3] Uncertain coin. Cohen VII 359: 188 describes: "Isis debout sour un vaisseau, tenent son voile et sa robe...". However, Alföldi 63: 34 says: "I think, that this type is wrongly described (by Cohen) and should actually correspond to the reverse of Constantine pl. I, 15", and Vagi 574: 3435 has a question mark.
