UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Maximinus. General note from p. 527: "Lighter than the last aes issue, but heavier than the next, this issue, with renewed 'simple' mark, shows a change of type to the Licinian Iovi Conservatori, introduced at Thessalonica at the same time. So far only coins for Maximinus have been authenticated, and these are scarce: coinage for Licinius and Constantine may remain to be found. Date, c. 311". Coin should be listed before HERACLEA 64.
