$*$-Subvarieties of the Variety Generated by $\bigl( M_2(\mathbb{K}),t \bigr)$ Let $\mathbb{K}$ be a field of characteristic zero, and $*=t$ the transpose involution for the matrix algebra $M_2 (\mathbb{K})$. Let $\mathfrak{U}$ be a proper subvariety of the variety of algebras with involution generated by $\bigl( M_2 (\mathbb{K}),* \bigr)$. We define two sequences of algebras with involution $\mathcal{R}_p$, $\mathcal{S}_q$, where $p,q \in \mathbb{N}$. Then we show that $T_* (\mathfrak{U})$ and $T_* (\mathcal{R}_p \oplus \mathcal{S}_q)$ are $*$-asymptotically equivalent for suitable $p,q$.
