REVERSE VARIETY. According to description in RIC, Sol has "chlamys over l. shoulder". Actually two issues are mixed here: (a) with Sol stg. l. with chlamys over l. shoulder and hanging behind and (b) with Sol stg. l. with chlamys draped over l. shoulder only. The former issue is mentioned in RIC VII in footnotes 3 and 4 on p. 360. See: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 298. General note from p. 278: "The rest of aes is devoted to four varieties of Soli Invicto Comiti, with coins ranging from rare to common. Constantine claims seven varieties in all, Maximinus four, and Licinius two". Coin should be listed before TICINUM 128.
