Notes:     (1) There are no recorded SECVRITAS_REIPVBLICE coins for Fausta in RIC. This obverse is generally reserved for Helena. This. most likely, indicates that this coin is a mule. However, the m inmark, according to RIC, assigns this coin to the 327-329 period, which is later than the death of Fausta. This coin indicates the existance of the ●SMANTA mint mark in the Fausta period of 326 and the likelihood that the corresponding Helena issue noted as RIC 82 should be reassigned to the earlier group and should be considered as identical to RIC 75.
