UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue, with smaller portrait-head, only for Diocletian and Maximian Herculius, but note that it could be also ALEXANDRIA 13b, unlisted for officina. Note also errors in legends: CAE instead of CAES and MILITAM instead of MILITVM. Listed in Gautier - Alexandria (p. 142, no. 27). Should be listed in RIC after ALEXANDRIA 9b.
