Poids lourd. Semis frappé sur un étalon romain semi-oncial comme celui de Copia (Thurium). Émission avec la lyre.
Le monnayage d’étalon semi-oncial comprend sept dénominations monétaires : as, semis, triens, quadrans, sextans, uncia et semuncia comme dans le système romain. Il y a plusieurs émissions associées chacune à un différent (croissant, étoile, araire, gouvernail, vase, écrevisse, couronne, taureau, grain d’orge, lyre, trépied, mouche, dauphin, bonnet, victoire, carnyx ou pétoncle). Il y aurait ainsi vingt-et-une marques différentes permettant d’établir une chronologie relative. Les monnaies sont normalement marquées de chaque côté.
