UNLISTED BUST TYPE - G11 var. Not attested for obv. legend 7a (p. 191). Bust type similar to G11 except for bust draped and cuirassed instead of cuirassed only. Footnote to TRIER 314 reads as follows: "Rev. break A-N, obv. bust dr., spear across r. shoulder". Listed in RMBT (p. 64, no. 12). Note that RMBT does not feature a picture of TRIER 314 (p. 64, no. 13) and it could be an error in RIC (G11 l. instead of G11). Coin should be listed before TRIER 314.
