Hello,

On the RIC 8, page 260: RIC 160 say ''CS1 / G3L     for CS1 i understood its legend: D N CONSTAN - TIVS P F AVG.. But what is G3L? I thinks its the desription bust, but where can i find it?

Mint mark locations are hard to understand too. On same RIC 160 under: N_ R :star:P  what mean G and  star (for RIC 161)?

G3L = draped and cuirassed globe in right hand, pearl-diademed, left.

You can find bust descriptions on spread out leaf after Plate 28.

The G and * indicate where each officina has been seen/reported.

RIC 160 has G in "S" column, meaning that officina S has been seen in Otto Voetter's G(erin) catalog

RIC 161 has * in "S" column, meaning that officina S has been seen somewhere

I encounter a last problem: RIC VIII (Roma mint) for example 195 to 197:

      RP
L  P  PU
L  L  L   W  .  H
       C   L   L  L

Why RP upside? It is for example, to mean that all marks beging by R, then P, S, T, E, Q? And then the C mean RT minmark seen on Cohen?

RP is code for mintmarks RP to RS (P-B-T-Q-E-S -> 1-2-3-4-5-6)

Rest of letters are codes for collections, where the coin was noted.
See listing on page xliii, where eg. C = Copenhagen, Nationalmuseum.
