UNLISTED BUST TYPE AND REVERSE LEGEND. Bust type B1 not attested for Crispus' coins from issue TICINUM 140-162. Portrait of a good style, but note rev. legend CAESARVM NOSTRORVM instead of expected DOMINORVM NOSTRORVM CAESS or DOMINOR • NOSTROR • CAESS. Probably an ancient imitation. Should be listed among other irregular coins in footnotes after TICINUM 160.
