NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE [B4], HYBRID. Bust type 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, there is a possibility of an error in description. Additionally, it is a hybrid of unlisted Crispus' obverse with reverse of ARLES 280 and should be listed after ARLES 281.
