[CORRECTION]. RIC cites coin from Cambridge (Fitzwilliam Museum) but according to Cloke-Toone this specimen has bust type H4 l. (with spear pointing forward). See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 112. Listed in Cloke-Toone (9.03.016) but needs confirmation. Additionally, example from the Killingholme Hoard (illustrated in Cloke-Toone on p. 261) is considered unofficial. Note that the present specimen also could be regarded as an ancient imitation.
