UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this type only for Maximinus (p. 592). Constantine is not listed for any Cyzicus issue of Sole Invicto. General note about this issue from p. 576: "An extended range of types is introduced, most of them scarce or rare. [...] Sole Invicto, with all the implications of the ablative absolute, is struck for Maximinus only. [...] Date, c. 311-12". The last statement is not true in light of new findings. Apparently, coins with Sole Invicto legend were struck also for Licinius and Constantine. Coin should be listed after CYZICUS 92.
