UNLISTED BUST TYPE - G. Not attested for obv. legend 2b (p. 196). Coin should be listed after TREVERI 516b. But note that the distinction between modius and turreted crown "is often very hard to make" (footnote 1 on p. 196). If Genius has modius on head, coin should be listed after TREVERI 509.

NOTES

Weight 9.82 g. Coin sold on Triton XII (lot 758) in January 2009 for $660.
