Note: I bought this example because of the amusing termination of the reverse legend. The celator ran out of room for the final GG without running into the exergue, so it was engraved perpendicular to the associated AV.

Ex Keith Metzer Collection, October 2003

Note: Although MKx is a valid exergual mark for coins in RIC VI, the period RIC VII covers does not list a series without S in the exergue. It is entirely feasible the S is missing from a filled die, but there is no ghost of a letter and I'm listing it as MKA in the event another example surfaces with the same mark.
