NOT IN RIC

REVERSE VARIETY. Specimen similar to TRIER 132 except for Sol holding globe turned inwards instead of turned out. Note that description in RIC is very short and general: "globe in l." (p. 174), but for the former Soli issue [TRIER 92-107] two types of reverses were distinguished: Sol with globe in l. at hip-level, turned inwards [TRIER 92-94] and Sol with globe higher and turned out [TRIER 95-107]. There is no reason for omitting this difference.
