UNLISTED ISSUE. RIC lists similar issue with obv. legend IOVI CONSERVATORI AVGG [HERACLEA 73-75]. But note also eastern type of Iupiter conservator with no eagle to l. and chlamys hanging behind (not hanging from l. shoulder), struck exclusively by Maximinus Daza (see: Bruun, P., "The Iupiter Conservator of the Emperor Maximinus", [in:] Florilegium Numismaticum. Studia honorem U. Westermark edita, Stockholm 1992).

General note from p. 528: "This issue falls into two sections, before and after Maximinus' capture of Heraclea. In the first, Iovi Conservatori Augg continues for all three rulers - all with 'mature' legends: the coins are not uncommon [...] Date, 313". Although this type exists also for Licinius and Constantine, it probably belongs to the second section (after Maximinus' capture of Heraclea) which explains presence of Daza's Iupiter type on the reverse.

Coin should be listed after HERACLEA 77.
