UNLISTED BUST TYPE - C. Not attested for obv. legend 2a (p. 388). But note that it could be bust type F (draped and cuirassed), also not attested for obv. legend 2a. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, BUST TYPES SEEN FROM REAR. General note about this issue from p. 348-9: "[Also common] was Soli Invicto Comiti, in different versions, of which three are primary and often very common: produced from all four officinae [...] The whole issue, in which the four officinae seem to be fairly evenly used throughout, falls late in 312 and early 313". See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 388-390. Coin should be listed before ROMA 322b.
