NOT IN RIC

[CORRECTION]. RIC gives bust B4, i.e. cuirassed and draped. However, cites this type after Voetter (Otto Voetter, Sammlung Bachofen von Echt: Römische Münzen und Medaillons, Wien 1903, p. 141, no. 2480; not illustrated) who describes bust as cuirassed only. Possibly Bruun's slip or misprint in RIC (B4 instead of B5).

NOTES

AV fraction (probably of 1½ scripula or 9 siliquae). Weight 1.63 g. From Triton II (lot 1061), December 1998.
