RIC VI, ALEXANDRIA [before 134b], MAXIMINUS, UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND [IRREGULAR COIN]

  

OBVERSE

GALVALMAXIMINVSNOBCAES [GAL VAL MAXIMINVS NOB CAES]; head r., laur.

REVERSE

BONOGENIOPII-IMPERATORIS [BONO GENIO PII IMPERATORIS]; Genius stg. l., modius on head, naked but for chlamys over l. shoulder, r. holding patera (from which liquor flows), l. cornucopiae. Crescent over K in left field and Α over P in right field. ALE in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Not attested for the Group V (p. 681). Obv. legend (appropriate for Maximinus as Caesar) may suggest that this issue was started before the death of Galerius and partially belongs to the Group IV. But style is poor and coin should be regarded as an ancient imitation. Could be noted before ALEXANDRIA 134b.

NOTES
