UNLISTED ISSUE. Many types with m.m. PR are omitted in RIC V/2 and RIC VI. There is a very slight possibility that some of them were minted after Reform. Also, others were added here for comparison. Note that there are attested four varieties of rev. legend: VIR-TVSAVG-G, VIRT-VSAVG-G, VIRTVSAVG-G, and unbroken. Coin could be listed after ROMA 8b.
