UNLISTED BUST TYPE - B4. Not attested for obv. legend 5a (p. 264). Note that RIC lists a single specimen with bust type B3 quoted after Dattari and, according to footnote 281 on p. 264, only reverse of this specimen is illustrated in Dattari's book. Therefore, it could be an error in description. Coin should be listed after ARLES 281.
