Notes:     This coin presents some interesting variations: the obverse is FL AELENA_AVGVSTA intead of FL HELENA_AVGVSTA; the reverse is SECVRITAS_REIPVBLICA instead of SECVRITAS_REIPVBLICE; and the mint mark is unrecorded in RIC for this issue. Interesting to say the least, and maybe the die engraver was having a really bad day.
