UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Specimen similar to CYZICUS 74 except for obv. legend GAL VAL MAXIMINVS MOB C instead of GAL VAL MAXIMINVS P F AVG, which suggests that was minted for Maximinus as Caesar. It could be an engraver's error or evidence that this issue was started earlier and partially belongs to the Group IV. Further investigations needed. Coin should be listed before CYZICUS 74.

NOTES

Weight 5.77 g; diameter 24 mm. From Roma Numismatics E-SALE 61 (lot 957), August 2019.
