I'd be appreciative of any "leads" you can give me towards an attribution for this provincial coin of Nero. All I have is the photo to go by (so far) -- see photo below. I have asked the seller if he can give the obverse legend which appears pretty legible. As for the reverse, which is what is generally useful in these cases, all I have is "Figure reclining right". I can't even tell it is a figure, but maybe some of you will recognize it? In my RPC Index under Reverse Types, "figure reclining right" is of no help. Thanks in advance, Breck

P.S. Coin is 20 mm and weighs 5.02 grams.

Smyrna, RPC 2484, rev. CTPATHGOC KLAPOC ZMYPNAIWN, river god reclining left.

I found it by looking up the obv. legend, NEPWNA CEBACTON, in the RPC index.

+Thanks Mr. Clay! I don't know how you read that obv. legend, but thanks! BB :D
