UNLISTED BUST TYPE - Q. Not attested for obv. legend 1f (p. 136). Listed in Huvelin (no. 92) with different description (mantle instead of cuirass) as example of LONDINIUM 206. Note that the distinction between bust types Q and R is sometimes hard to make but here pteruges are clearly visible. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 134. Coin should be listed before LONDINIUM 206.
