RIC VII,  (cf. 193)
Ex Cameleon Coins, eBay, April 2006
Note: RIC does not list this altar design for Arles, although it is known for London.
Note from Jeff Clark, May 9, 2006: "I think it is more a bastardized diamond with 4 dots in corners and dot in center type. It also has
three rows or layers across the bottom which is odd too. But, the shield is clearly not round and has 4 corners. I would think it was a
copy of some sort, but why anybody would copy the diamond shape so small is beyond me."
