UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue for Diocletian and Galerius Maximian (p. 666). Sutherland arbitrary regarded similar type with bust A as a hybrid. See footnote 7 on p. 666: "Vienna and B.M. include what must be hybrids, namely, Iovi Cons Caes with Imp C M A Maximianus P F Aug, from at any rate four officinae". Coin should be listed after ALEXANDRIA 42.
