comment ICPS
The dies are notable for their cursive style with such poor lettering the reading is uncertain - possibly CASSICOS \ CASSICCOS A separate name was given to differentiate the dies from those of CANICOS P54 the most likely alternative but typically with clear readable dies. Originally classified as a different name SOIIIRINI has been added when it became apparent that when rotated the reading matched P106 Die 01A01.
