NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED ISSUE. Not attested in RIC but cf. ANTIOCHIA 158 and RIC VII ANTIOCH 3A (in "Addenda and Corrigenda", p. 720; note Jupiter with chlamys hanging from l. shoulder). The iconography of reverse (Jupiter with cloak spread behind) suggests that this issue was minted under Maximinus (see: Bruun, P., "The Iupiter Conservator of the Emperor Maximinus", [in:] Florilegium Numismaticum. Studia honorem U. Westermark edita, Stockholm 1992). Coin should be probably listed after ANTIOCHIA 131 or later.

NOTES

Aureus. Weight 5.25 g. Coin offered on Hirsch auction in 2014 for EUR 3,200.
