REVERSE VARIETY. Specimen similar to LONDINIUM 122 except for Sol holding globe close to body. Listed in Cloke-Toone together with LONDINIUM 121a (6.02.011) as a minor variety. However, this rev. type usually constitutes a separate issue or sub-issue (cf. ROMA 324-330b, 339-340, OSTIA 83-88) which should be listed after LONDINIUM 127.
