UNLISTED ISSUE. RIC lists only one type with this mintmark pattern for Maximinus as Caesar: Genio Caesaris [HERACLEA 46] (p. 536). The previous emission of Virtus Exerciti [HERACLEA 44a-45] has no star in left field. The next emission, with star in right field, is attested for Maximinus as Augustus [HERACLEA 51-52]. Coin should be listed after HERACLEA 46.
