BUST TYPE VARIETY. Bust type similar to MM except for laureate helmet. Note that for this issue RIC does not distinguish plain helmet from laureate helmet or radiate helmet. However, this difference is mentioned in footnotes (cf. footnote 6 and 12 on p. 250 or footnote 3 on p. 251). Note also shield studded instead of plain (cf. footnote 11 on p. 252).
