Imitations from a Balkan Hoard 2

M97. Types of Spurius Afranius, after 150 BC; cf. Cr-206/1, 3.04g. Both sides stylized; blundered, barely recognizable reverse legend.

M98. Types of L. Cupiennus (?), after147 BC; cf. Cr-218/1, 4.35g. Both sides stylized, blundered and mis-struck, perhaps barely recognizable reverse legend, accurate ROMA in exergue.

M99. Types of P. Aelius Paetus (?), after 138 BC; cf. Cr-233/1, 3.74g. Both sides stylized; no remaining legends. The suggested prototype is based on general considerations of style and configuration, and is perhaps unduly speculative. Two examples from these dies in the hoard; a third from the same reverse die.
