Commentary

The third line of the inscription on the reverse is quite strange; it seemingly contains Γ, possibly with a second Γ beginning slightly below and to the right of it. What this is meant to represent, perhaps the number 3, is unknown. A similar stray Γ is found in Laurent, Orghidan, no. 439.
