NOT IN RIC

UNLISTD REVERSE TYPE. The description of reverses of ROMA 313-344 apparently lacks precision (see also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 388-390), however, RIC does not list a rev. with Sol stg. r, chlamys flying out on both sides, holding whip and globe (but cf. footnotes 2-4 on p. 388 and 2-3 on p. 389). Coin should be listed after ROMA 340.
