UNLISTED BUST TYPE - C1. RIC lists for Crispus only bust type B5, although both bust types, B5 and C1, are listed for other rulers. See also footnote 135 on p. 379: "A. Alföldi, RIN 1921, p. 118, records Crispus coins of the obv. 5 (C1), off. P in the Trau coll., off. T in the Gerin coll.: the latter not checked in Milan. In a way it would be natural to expect radiate heads for Crispus too, as all other rulers have parallel busts, one of which is radiate". According to information from www.tesorillo.com, specimen from officina P is listed in Cayón (Juan R. Cayón, Compendio de las Monedas del Imperio Romano, vol. III, Madrid 1985, p. 2313, no. 82). Coin should be listed after TICINUM 135.
