Commentary

The reverse clearly indicates the title σκρίβων, though it is unclear whether the nominative σκρίβων is intended, or the genitive σκρίβωνος (to match the obverse), in which case the ο would have to be found within the loop of the ρ. The dative σκρίβωνι is unlikely without any invocation and with a genitive on the obverse.
