M357. Various types, after 194 BC (first biga), 5.08g. Both sides somewhat stylized; no obverse legend other than X; blundered, meaningless reverse legend.
M358. Types of L. Sempronius Pitio, after 148 BC; cf. Cr-216/1, 3.71g. Both sides stylized; no obverse legend other than X; blundered, recognizable reverse legend; only one rider on horses!
M359. Types of C. Minucius, after 133 BC; cf. Cr-248/1, 3.72g.  Both sides somewhat stylized; blundered, recognizable reverse legend.
M360. Types of Appius Claudius Pulcher et. al., after 111 BC; cf. Cr-299/1a, 4.30g, serrate. Both sides stylized; no obverse legend; remnants of blundered reverse legend; inappropriate serration.
M361. Obverse type of L. Scipio Asiagenus, reverse type of Cn. Blasio, after 106 BC; cf. Cr-311/1 (O) and Cr-296/1k (R), 4.12g,. Both sides quite stylized, almost "barbarous;" no legends; reverse type mirror-image, but the attributes and exurgal symbols surprisingly accurately reproduced.
M362. Types of L. Appuleius Saturninus, after 104 BC; cf. Cr-318/1, 2.98g. Both sides fine style, accurate reproductions of the prototype; no legends. Would be classified as Copy were it not for the lack of legends, and the fact that the reverse is mirror-image of the model. Presumably this is the result of two engravers, one of whom better understood the mechanics of his task. (Or, I suppose, a single engraver, before and after a few goblets of wine!)
M363. Obverse type of L. Sempronius Pitio, reverse type of L. Sentius, after 101 BC; cf. Cr-216/1 (O) and Cr-325/1 (R), 3.52g. Both sides faintly stylized, with accurate legends. (In a forthcoming paper, I will further analyze this coin and two other imitations which share its obverse die.)
M364. Obverse type of L. Appuleius Saturninus, reverse type of D. Silanus, after 91 BC; cf. Cr-318/1 (O) and Cr-337/3 (R), 3.13g. Both sides somewhat stylized; no legends,
M365. Obverse type of Cr-350, reverse type of Q. Antonius Balbus, after 82 BC; cf. Cr-350 (O) and Cr-364/1 (R), 3.65g, serrate. Both sides somewhat stylized; no obverse legend; blundered, recognizable reverse legend. Overstruck on uncertain type.
M366. Obverse type of L. (or L. & C.) Memmius Galeria, reverse type of L. Procilius, after 80 BC; cf. Cr-313/1 or Cr-349/1 (O) and Cr-379/1 (R), 4.30g. Both sides somewhat stylized; accurate obverse control letter; blundered, recognizable reverse legend.
M367. Types of C. Naevius Balbus, after 79 BC; cf. Cr-382/1, 4.53g, serrate. Both sides somewhat stylized; blundered obverse control; blundered, abstract reverse legend.
