* Rome 65a, "R5" for Theodosius, has a footnote: "Ulrich-Bansa thinks this to be a copy in aes of no. 66 [a siliqua], which he suspects of being a forgery by Cigoi." I have delisted the Theodosius piece on the main page and put it in Table 2A as type 2A6. Rome 65b, for Eugenius, has three citations and must exist.

Cayon, Eugenius 14(1), 15(1). 14 is said to be, and pictures, an AE3 of 17mm. I think this is not an AE3, but merely an accidental enlargement.
