M66. Types of  P. Clodius Turrinus, after 42 BC; cf. Cr-494/23, 3.28g. Both sides stylized, the obverse of marvelous style; long, apparently meaningless obverse legend, where prototype has no legend at all (see introduction;) reverse legend is correct, but continues with meaningless addition in exergue. I know very few parallels of this creation of legends out of whole cloth.Found in Dobrudja, Romania.
M67. Types of Lucius Appuleius Saturninus, after 104 BC; cf. Cr-317/3, 3.83g. Both sides rather stylized; meaningless obverse legend; blundered but recognizable reverse legend. The attribution of the obverse is not certain.
