[CORRECTION]. SISCIA 28b is cited and described in RIC after Voetter's drawing [Numismatische Zeitschrift, 1920, Tafel 11] which is not very clear [click for picture]. Actually, Sol is holding whip and globe and Sol's chlamys is also hanging behing. SISCIA 28a probably should be corrected in the same way.
