NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE - H1 l. Not attested for obv. legend 1 (p. 191). Note error in obv. legend: ...AV instead of ...AVG (cf. p. 216, n. 537 to TRIER 537). Possibly an engraver's error but see also example of this type from off. S. Could be regarded as an ancient imitation. However, listed in RMBT (p. 32, no. 50). Coin should be listed after TRIER 317.
