NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this rev. type (Genius with modius on head) only for Galerius Maximian and Maximian Herculius (p. 129). For the difference between "modius on head" and "head towered" compare examples of LONDINIUM 85 (modius on head) and LONDINIUM 89b (head towered). Note, however, that sometimes this difference is not obvious. Therefore Cloke-Toone (p. 46-7, 136) combines coins with both types of rev. into single catalogue number. Listed in Cloke-Toone (5.01.007). Should be listed in RIC after LONDINIUM 84.
