These anonymous cast coins have been attibuted to the reign of Caligula by Dattari, Copenhagen follows this attribution but some scholars such as Milne disagree.The attibution remains prolematic but the time frame must be early Roman occupation in view of the fact that cast flans are employed which are similar in fabric to late Ptolemaic issues of Cyprus and Cyrenaica.
