Reverse legend : ANÉPIGRAPHE.
Reverse description : Croix bouletée au centre, formée de quatre cantons : une ancre bouletée aux 1er et 4e cantons, un arc de cercle bouleté avec un point au-dessus et au-dessous au 2e et une hache évidée à gauche avec le manche bouleté au 3e canton.


La monnaie semble fourrée. Le droit semble avoir une accumulation de traces incuses. Ce revers, le plus courant, a été complété par les auteurs du Moneta 28, qui jugent fautive ou plutôt incomplète la lecture de Savès, à cause de revers souvent incomplets. Ils signalent la présence de trois globules aux 1er et 4e canton et deux globules au 2e canton, en plus des ornements signalés (?).
