Overbeck – Meshorer no. 127.
In Overbeck-Meshorer this coin is listed as a coin of year 33, although Bernhard Overbeck mentions that the date is not sure. The obverse die of this coin (MCP ANT 12 O1) was only used in the year 34, so that (in our opinion) the coin was struck in this year, although the reverse die is not listed in the Menorah Coin Project.
