Corrigenda to Coin References
Below is the start of a list of corrections that I have discovered that need
to be made to some of the standard numismatic reference works.
Roman Imperial Coinage, (Various)
Volume IV, Part I
Volume IV, Part III
- On p. 44, Clodius Albinus, No. 4: For obverse legend (b) D CL SEPT ALBIN
CAES should read obverse legend (a) D CLOD SEPT ALBIN CAES
- On p. 96, Philip II, No. 218: For obverse description globe and
standard should read globe and reverse spear.
- Heraclea, pg 530, legend 2a of Maximianus should read IMP C M A MAXIMIANVS P F AVG rather than IMP C M A VAL MAXIMIANVS P F AVG

'indeterminate object'" should read "As 17(a), but without

Roman Silver Coins, D. R. Sear

Handbook of Roman Imperial Coins, D Van Meter
On p. 68 (Augustus, #60) The photo labeled #60 should be labeled as #60a.
On p. 69 (Augustus, #81) The photo labeled #81 should be labeled as #81a.b.
On p. 70 (Augustus, #93) The obverse legend in the photo is
CAESAR AVGVSTVS DIVI F PATER PATRIAE, not
CAESAR PONT MAX.
This appears to be RIC 233 rather than RIC 230.
On p. 73 Heading Auadrans should be Quadrans.
On p. 76 (Tiberius, #17-#17b) The reverse legends are given as
PONTIF MAXIM TRIBVM POTEST XXXVI, ... POTEST XXXVII..., and ...POTEST
XXXIIX...,. An S C should be placed at the end of each of those
legends or it should be noted that the legend is around large S C in
field. Also, the picture for #17b has the reverse legend PONTIF
MAXIM TR POT XXXIIX around large S C in field. The text, however,
gives the legend as PONTIF MAXIM TRIBVM POTEST XXXIIX.
On p. 79 (Caligula, #5a & #5b) These varieties listed are obverse
varieties, not reverse varieties.
On p. 82 (Claudius, #11) Reverse legend

EX S C / P P / OB CIVES / SERVATOS.
Also, the photo shown for #11 should be labeled #11a.
On p. 82 (Claudius, #19 & #20) Obverse varieties listed are
actually reverse varieties.
On p. 84 (Nero) Sestertius of Caludius #12 should be labeled as

NERO CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG GERM PM TR P IMP PP.
This is not a variety listed for #17.
On p. 86 (Nero, #20) The photo labeled #20 should be labeled
#20d. Also, in the obverse varieties, ol/6 is listed for
(a). This is a duplicate since the same obverse legend
is listed in the original description.
On p. 87 Heading RCopper Semis should read Copper Semis.
On p. 87 (Nero, #31) The obverse legend in the photo is
NERO CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG GERMANIC. This does not match
ol/3 (NERO CLAVD CAESAR GERMANICVS) the type listed in
the obverse description.
#31 should also have the following variety listed:
Rev - PONTIF MAX TR P IMP PP; Nero as Apollo right
playing lyre. Obv - NERO CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG GERMA; Bare
head of Nero left.
