NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - B [UNLISTED BUST TYPE?]. RIC lists only officina A (p. 194). It is unclear if the presence of drapery on l. shoulder should be treated as a minor variety of bust type A or makes a separate bust type. Note that Sutherland only rarely distinguishes these two types (cf. bust types A and B on p. 175). See also TREVERI 461 and unlisted TREVERI [after 476b].

NOTES

Weight 10.45 g; diameter 27 mm. From Guy Braun's collection.
