This coin is remarkable for the Greek letters  (large gamma, small beta, and small iota) drilled into the obverse. The letters were added in the late fourth-fifth centuries CE to convert the coin to a scale weight of 3 scripula (gamma) of 12 (beta iota) obols. Unique with this very late modification.
