NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Galerius Maximian (p. 638). General note from p. 609: "A small and very rare issue which may be part of (i): it includes Sole (or Soli) Invicto in two varieties for Maximinus as Caesar (armoured bust) and Augustus, in a third (quadriga) variety for Licinius, and with anomalous form of legend for Galerius. Date, 310". Note also that description in RIC could be misleading; see CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 638. Coin should be listed after ANTIOCHIA 144.
