UNLISTED REVERSE TYPE. Although the description in RIC is quite vague, all corresponding pictures from plate 7 (nos. 22, 33, 40, 45, 49 and 50) show Sol holding up globe and with chlamys hanging from left shoulder (see example of ROME 23). Here we have globe close to body and chlamys flying out. Coin should be listed after ROME 24.

NOTES

Weight 2.8 g; diameter 19 mm. Coin sold on VCoins in June 2004 for $17.99 [Thanks to the collaboration of Armin Scholz].
