UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. RIC lists for this bust type [B] obverse legend 7b which has BAEAT instead of BEAT [ALEXANDRIA 125] (p. 680). But note that it could be a misprint in RIC: 7b instead of 7c. Note also that the description of busts in RIC is slightly misleading. See: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 680. Coin should be listed after ALEXANDRIA 125.
