That was a difficult one ! Once attributed, one migth say it really fits in style, but to get there. Even if the mint is clearly indicated, i could not have read it purely from the legend.

I was intrigued by the small thick dumpy flan but had no idea where it was from, zeno has similar examples with the mint in a square
