NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED REVERSE TYPE. Specimen similar to ANTIOCHIA 135 from Group V (p. 636), except for different m.m. pattern with no star over altar. Therefore it belongs to Group IV. Cohen probably was aware of this type (see Cohen, vol. VII, p. 154, no. 132).

Coin should be listed after ANTIOCHIA 120 which has nearly the same reverse, but Maximinus is holding only globe (without Victory). Note, however, that the description of ANTIOCHIA 120 in RIC is incorrect (see: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 633).
