NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE. Not attested for obv. legend 2a (p. 247). Coin probably belongs to extremely rare issue LUGDUNUM 68-69. But note that it could be an engraver's error or obliterated 'G' and therefore LUGDUNUM 85. Coin should be listed after LUGDUNUM 68.

NOTES

Weight 9.78 g; diameter 27-30 mm. From Brutus Collection.
