NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE - F. The description of ANTIOCHIA 120 in RIC is incorrect (see: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 633) and specimen from Berlin cited in RIC has actually bust type E attested for Group V (p. 635; "l., laur., dr., cuir., r. holding Victory on globe, l. decorated shield"). However, Sutherland probably has seen also another specimen, with bust type "helmeted and armoured", i.e. similar to bust type F (see p. 607). Coin should be listed after ANTIOCHIA 120.
