NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OFFICINA - Є. RIC lists for Licinius only officina Δ (p. 592). Note that there is an error in RIC. Iconography on reverse is not similar to CYZICUS 78-80. In fact, Jupiter is holding Victoriola on globe, not just globe; there is no eagle at feet to l.; Jupiter's chlamys is hanging behind, not from l. shoulder. See: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 592.

NOTES

Weight 6.04 g; diameter 20 mm. Coin sold on eBay in February 2008 for $36.07.
