NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this 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 90 (head towered); but note that sometimes the difference is hard to determine. Coin should be listed after LONDINIUM 84.
