I want to share with you this unpublished piece of Aurelianus from Cyzicus mint:

(https://i.servimg.com/u/f30/16/47/08/05/inedit10.jpg) (https://servimg.com/view/16470805/188)

D\ IMP AVRELIANVS AVG, ; (bust D2)
R\ PROVIDENT AVG

this piece is a RIC 335var (not listed in RIC for this type of bust).
The RIC online show 3 different type of bust for this reverse, but not this one:

1) D1L,  RIC n. 2915 http://www.ric.mom.fr/en/coin/2915?tempRIC=&asmSelect0=&Reign=Aurelianus&asmSelect1=&asmSelect2=&asmSelect3=&asmSelect4=&asmSelect5=&asmSelect6=&Titulature=IMP+AVRELIANVS+AVG&asmSelect7=&asmSelect8=&ObverseMark=&asmSelect9=&asmSelect10=&asmSelect11=&BustDescription=&ReverseDescription=&Note=&Reference=&page=1&hpp=50&mod=result&from=advanced
2) B1, RIC n. 2916 http://www.ric.mom.fr/en/coin/2916?tempRIC=&asmSelect0=&Reign=Aurelianus&asmSelect1=&asmSelect2=&asmSelect3=&asmSelect4=&asmSelect5=&asmSelect6=&Titulature=IMP+AVRELIANVS+AVG&asmSelect7=&asmSelect8=&ObverseMark=&asmSelect9=&asmSelect10=&asmSelect11=&BustDescription=&ReverseDescription=&Note=&Reference=&page=1&hpp=50&mod=result&from=advanced

3) tipo B1L, RIC n. 2916 http://www.ric.mom.fr/en/coin/2917?tempRIC=&asmSelect0=&Reign=Aurelianus&asmSelect1=&asmSelect2=&asmSelect3=&asmSelect4=&asmSelect5=&asmSelect6=&Titulature=IMP+AVRELIANVS+AVG&asmSelect7=&asmSelect8=&ObverseMark=&asmSelect9=&asmSelect10=&asmSelect11=&BustDescription=&ReverseDescription=&Note=&Reference=&page=1&hpp=50&mod=result&from=advanced

For all the type (1 to 3) the ric online shows only a specimen each

Wow. Nice one that I missed...must be early in his reign and somewhat sloppy execution of lettering, especially on the reverse, but it looks official.
Must be nice to own an unlisted issue. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Vincent!
The execution of lettering is not so good, but yes,  I think it's official.
I have some unlisted issue, but no one for Aurelianus!  ;)
