UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND AND BUST TYPE - B4. Neither obv. legend nor bust type is attested for this issue (p. 444). Note that portrait on obv. is not in the usual Siscian style (compare SISCIA 97 with typical Siscian portrait of Crispus). Reading of m.m is uncertain - given after owner. Coin could be reagrded as an ancient imitation. Oherwise, should be listed after SISCIA 161.
