Additional comment
Avram 2012–15: Rv.: ΑΤΙΚ et hémisphère, Netzhammer, Ruzicka (qui ajoute, n. 1: «Regling vermutet (brieflich), daß es der Petasos des Hermes ist»); ΙΤΑΛΙΚ, Moisil; δ-ικ(αία), Ocheşeanu. L’hémisphère figurant sur le revers a été interprétée comme bonnet de Dioscure par R. Ocheşeanu et, de manière indépendante, par P. Weiß.
