    FAKE – This specimen, as well as the two other published in the BoC on page 19, are cast from the same mould and show the identical metal flaw in the reverse field. The model may have been an octodrachm from the Istip hoard of a. 1912. The weight is too low, it should range between ca. 38,5 g and 41,0 g.
