M261. Various obverse prototypes, reverse type of Ti. Claudius Nero, after 79 BC; cf. Cr-383/1 (R), 4.34g. Both sides rather stylized, blundered, recognizable reverse legend and control number.

M264+. Types of L. Roscius, after 64 BC; cf. Cr-412/1, 3.72g, serrate. Obverse somewhat stylized; reverse "barbarous" and quite appealing;  badly blundered but recognizable legends.
