Cette série à la cavalière armée est composée de rarissimes monnaies au foudre et de rares monnaies à la lyre. Ce second groupe est plus diversifié, dans la style et dans les ornements du revers. D’un style de droit très proche du DT. 2090, ce statère a bien deux croisettes autour de la lyre sous le cheval (comme le n° 241 du musée de Péronnes).
