There is also rev. variety: Sol with chlamys flying out on both sides.

General note 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.
