NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE - B4 l. Not attested for obv. legend 7a (p. 192). Style of rev. is good but portrait on obv. is very clumsy. The bust probably was intended to be draped and cuirassed. Apparently an ancient imitation. Could be noted before TRIER 326.

NOTES

Weight 2.20 g; diameter 18 mm. Coin sold on eBay in March 2017 for GBP 2.20.
