In my Scott 2017 Classic Specialized, this is either P9 or P9B.

P9 is a coarse print, P9B is a fine print.

There also types of the design. P9 can be Type I or II. P9B can be Type I, II, or III, but this is probably not P9Bc (the type I version), as that variety is gray lilac, which the picture doesn't look like. The rest of the varieties of P9 and P9B are violet in the catalogue, though there are shades possible that range from gray to lilac-brown and deep violet.

Used catalog values:
COARSE PRINT
P9 type I $8.50
P9a type II $25
FINE PRINT
P9B type III $0.40
P9Bc type I $32.50
P9Bd type II $8.5

Type I: helmet not defined at back, more or less blurred, 2 thick short lines in front of wing of helmet, shadow on front of face not separated from hair
Type II: helmut distinctly defines, 4 thin short lines in front of wing, shadow on front of face clearly defined from hair
Type III: outer white circle around head is open at top (closed on Type I and II), greek border at top and bottom is wider than on Type I and II

In addition to the different varieties, there is an abundance of different shades.
