UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Specimen similar to ROMA 118b except for BAEATISSIMO in obv. legend instead of shorter BAEATISS (p. 364). But cf. footnote 1 on p. 365: "Voetter in N.Z. also records D N DIOCLETIANO FELICISSIMO, &c., again presumably in error". Coin should be listed before ROMA 118b.

NOTES

Weight 9.53 g. Coin sold on CNG auction 63 (lot 1524) in May 2003 for $280.
