UNLISTED BUST TYPE - Y. Not attested for obv. legend 4j (p. 189). Note, however, that this attribution is highly uncertain because the tip of the spear is somehow distorted. It could be bust type Z (with sceptre), i.e. TREVERI 371. Otherwise, coin should be listed before TREVERI 371.

NOTES

Weight 11.03 g; diameter 27 mm. Coin sold on Leu Numismatik Web Auction 8, part 2 (lot 1460) in June 2019 for CHF 280.
