NOT IN RIC

[CORRECTION]. RIC lists this type after Cohen, who cites "Ancien catalogue" (Cohen, vol. VII, p. 63, no. 37). Cohen gives rev. legend FELICITAS AVG NOSTR and Sutherland mentions in footnote 1 on p. 317: "Confirmation required: AVGG would in any case have been expected". Actually, rev. legend is indeed FELICITAS AVGG NOSTR. Note, however, that in INDEX II: REVERSE LEGENDS relevant entry reads FELICITAS AVGG NOSTR (p. 699).
