NOTES
[1] Alföldi 67: 68 describes this reverse as "Isis and Serapis", however in the other references of Alföldi (here cited), and in all others references of Cohen, Vagi and RIC, are indicated that they are "Isis and Osiris". We think that in all cases they are Sarapis (left) and Isis (right), because Osiris is not present in the Alexandrian coinage.
[2] This coin No. 36A is the same as No. 36, as we can see it has been restored..
[3] Uncertain coin, only mentioned by H. Cohen VIII 58: 115.
