[CORRECTION]. RIC lists for this issue only obv. legend 1d (p. 135). But note that there is an error in RIC and the specimen from British Museum has obv. legend 1e, not 1d. See Huvelin, p. 35 and CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 135. Note also that emperor is holding sceptre rather than spear. For this bust type see also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 134. Listed in Huvelin (no. 18). Listed in Cloke-Toone (7.01.024). Should be listed as corrected LONDINIUM 145.
