UNLISTED BUST TYPE. Not attested for this issue (p. 134). Similar to bust type R, but without eagle-tipped sceptre. Listed in Huvelin (no. 104b). However, note that in Huvelin bust type for no. 104a-104b is described as draped and cuirassed (see p. 41; "buste lauré, drapé, cuirassé à gauche"). In the present author's opinion no. 104a has bust type L (bust l., laur., cuir.) and the bust of no. 104b could be described as "in mantle". See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 134. Coin should be listed after LONDINIUM 210.
