NOTES
- Several coins appear to be identical but are given different numbers in RIC, e.g. RIC 1287 and RIC X 1321; 1323; 1326 and 1328 with 1287 simply given the additional header of "Milan and Aquileia styles", but in the introductory notes on mints, the RIC author does not describe any particular style characteristics of those mints. Almost all of these coins are also given the additional "Cohen 44" reference, so that is no help at all to distinguish 1287 from 1321, 1323 etc. So it seems that the only way of distinguishing them is using the various different captive and / or emperor descriptions for the reverse image.
- Having said that, not even the RIC author sticks to his own descriptions. The plate coins for 1205/1206 types b and c show the captive's legs identical on both coins, with slightly bent knee(s), so not "more or less straight".
- And in addition there is another type not in RIC, on which the captive has one leg straight and the other sharply bent (added above as type g, example on wildwinds).
