REVERSE VARIETY. Coin similar to HERACLEA 66, but RIC does not list variation with V inside the wreath. General note from p. 527: "Iovi Conservatori continues as the sole type: it occurs commonly for Licinius and Maximinus, rarely for Constantine. Both juniors still have the longer P F Inv Aug legend. The wreath, as at Thessalonica [...], anticipates Licinius' quinquennalia of 313. Date, 312". Coin should be listed after HERACLEA 67 as a separate issue (further investigations needed) or as a minor variation of HERACLEA 66. See CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 484, 518, 540-541.
