[CORRECTION]. RIC describes this bust as B4 l. (draped and cuirassed). Additionally, in footnote 75 on p. 101 Bruun writes as follows: "Some specimens with elaborate cuirass, resembling drapery". In fact, emperor is wearing trabea (bust type K1 l.). See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 100-102). Listed in Cloke-Toone (8.07.018).
