UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue for Licinius and Maximinus (p. 593). General note about this issue from p. 576: "A very small issue, of slightly lighter weight, containing only Genio Augusti CMH (plain Genius) and Sole Invicto for Licinius and Maximinus, with Iovi Conservatori for Maximinus. [...] ranging from scarce to very rare [...] Date, c. 312". Note also m.m. variation: dot is over officina letter, not in right field (cf. CYZICUS 98; ANS 1944.100.5843, 5.89 g, 23 mm, cited in RIC). Coin should be listed after CYZICUS 99.
