UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND AND BUST TYPE. RIC lists for this issue similar obv. legend (1a) but a little bit shorter: without P after MAX (p. 122). Bust type is not attested for entire RIC VII. Could be regarded as a rare variety of busts I1 and I2. For varieties of these busts see CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 89-90. Coin should be listed before LYONS 15.
