Hello all,

I would much appreciate a reference (Krzyzanowska, SNG, etc.) for this coin of Gordian III. It's 35mm and 25.41gm. It's not in BMC and I couldn't find a specific match with the usual online resources. Thanks!

Krzyz. obv. die XXIV, rev. die 98, pl. XXXVIII, p. 184, specimens in Berlin and Copenhagen.

The tiny G of AVG at the end of the obv. legend is cute, the engraver clearly having run out of space!
