[CORRECTION]. This unique specimen from Berlin cited in RIC is, as Bruun mentions, "very worn" and the description is uncertain. According to Bruun, the bust type is G1 [dr., spear acroos r. shoulder]. According to Bastien (Bastien Lyon II, footnote 1 on p. 138), there is also shield on l. arm ["Ric VII, no 71, décrit cette pièce avec une haste sur l'épaule droite. Bien que l'exemplaire soit en très mauvais état, on distingue en outre un bouclier sur l'épaule gauche"]. Listed in Bastien Lyon II (p. 138, no. 6). See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 127.

Weight 2.41 g. From Bastien Lyon II, plate I, no. 6.
