    Sambon, Miscellanea Num. 1921, p. 33 with 
        drawing of one coin

    Stazio, AIIN 1965-7, pp. 48, 52-3
    Sambon provides an indifferent drawing of 
        a previously unknown type of Meta-
        pontum, the same coin illustrated by 
        Evans on pl. 5, 4. This link, as well as 
        the similarity of contents and dates of 
        discovery, makes it clear that the hd. 
        described briefly by Sambon (Noe 128) 
        is the same as that later and more fully 
        published by Evans (N. 897)
