Remarks: (1) The first specimen of variant 3.13a was probably published by Weber 1896 (p. 26, no. 51). However, Weber did not read the inscription clockwise and he read the letter N behind the goat as IN, and therefore interpreted the text OKITIPE in the exergue as the name of an unknown tyrant or magistrate, which made him slightly doubt the authenticity of the coin. Based on next specimens, Imhoof-Blumer 1902 (pp. 453–4) dispelled doubts about the authenticity and correctly identified the entire inscription as a partly retrograde form of the city ethnic.
(2) Variant 3.13d was included in this type on the basis of incuse square on the reverse.
