M238. Types of P. Clodius Turrinus, after 42 BC; cf. Cr-494/23, 3.35g. Remarkably "barbarous" obverse, very stylized reverse; blundered, abstract reverse legend. The obverse is really beyond identification, described as Apollo only by association with the reverse of Diana Lucifera.

M241. Types of Augustus, after 2 BC; cf. RIC 208, 2.80g. Both sides a bit stylized; blundered, recognizable legends.
M242+. Types of L. Sempronius Pitio, after 148 BC; cf. Cr-216/1, 3.51g. Both sides somewhat stylized; no obverse legend other than inappropriate X behind Roma; somewhat blundered, recognizable reverse legend. See 228+ for another example of this obverse die.
