NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED ISSUE. Not attested in RIC with dot in m.m., but cf. CYZICUS 84a. If the dot is not accidental, this coin probably belongs to Group (iv). See footnote 2 on p. 593: "Maurice includes an issue with GENIO AVGVSTI alone, almost certainly in error". Note m.m. variety: dot is below officina letter instead of left field. Coin should be listed after CYZICUS 95.
