A very interesting coin with a new unrecorded type! Usually this coin should show the RIC type FH4 clutching. But here the horseman is not laying on his horse but sitting, and he is not clutching but resting on the horse's neck. I think it should not subsumed under FH4, but it's a different variant. Not in Helvetica's list.
