UNLISTED BUST TYPE [B4] AND MINTMARK. Not attested for obv. legend 5b (p. 261). Specimen similar to unlisted in RIC regular ARLES [after 254] except for errors in obv. legend (partially illegible but ended with CAS or CES) and unusual m.m. Apparently an ancient imitation. Coin should be noted after ARLES 254.
