UNLISTED BUST TYPE - D. Not attested for obv. legend 3b (p. 360). Note also that there is no officina letter. For this variety see footnote 2 on p. 359: "These common coins have been studied and recorded with insufficient care. It appears that there were examples (of which Vienna contains a number) without any officina-letter—a separate issue, or result of error in engraving ?". Coin should be listed after ROMA 88a.
