NOT IN RIC

[CORRECTION]. RIC suggests that dot in m.m. is placed in exergue, like for ANTIOCHIA 12 (cited and illustrated in RIC, and corrected here), Actually all specimens known to the present author have dot in left field. Note also misprint: obv. legend should be marked 3b, not 3a. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 614.
