UNLISTED ISSUE. RIC lists similar issue with rev. legend SOLE INVICTO [ANTIOCHIA 154a-d; see example of ANTIOCHIA 154c]. Sutherland mentions in footnote 3 on p. 640 that also for Galerius' coin "G. 37 [Voetter's Gerin Catalogue] gives A with Soli" (in his opinion "almost certainly in error"). Actually, the variety with SOLI also exists. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 639-640. Coin should be listed after ANTIOCHIA 154d.
