[CORRECTION]. The bust type of LYONS 191 is marked I1 l. (p. 134). However, the only existing variety is slightly different because Constantine's II l. hand is empty. For other varieties of busts I1 and I2 see CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 89-90. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 134. Listed in Bastien Lyon II (p. 159, no. 135).
