Re: Cornelia 33: "This and the following [i.e. Cornelia 44] are best explained as emergency Sullan issues in Italy produced in connection with the various military campaigns of the period. There is an aureas of this type (see No. 8)." - Roman Coins and Their Values by David Sear, Vol.1, 2000, pg.129. ... The reference in parenthesis of No. 8 refers to a Sears' number which is actually a Cornelia 32.
