Comments These coins were unobtainable until a small hoard emerged recently. They are still rare. The distinguishing features of this "Series 2" coin are that there are two dots above the circle in front of the bull, and the letter sa on the reverse is boxy and open on the bottom.

Attributions are tentative and based on my recent paper (to appear in the journal Numismatic Digest). A brief summary of the work can be seen here:
