NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Maximinus. However, see footnote 5 on p. 538: "No issues are recorded for Galerius (though VG. 17 suggests one) or Licinius". But note that Voetter (p. 113, no. 17) gives no officina for Galerius' issue. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 538. Coin should be listed before HERACLEA 57.

NOTES

Weight 7.95 g; diameter 24-25 mm. Coin sold on eBay in July 2011 for $260 [Thanks to the collaboration of Tomasz Speier].
