UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Severus [rarity R4] (p. 365). Note that the reading of rev. legend is uncertain. Cohen lists similar issue for Maximinus with PRINCIPI IVVENTVT [not IVVENTVTIS] (Cohen, vol. VII, p. 156, no. 141; valued at 15 francs). General note about this issue from p. 337 mentions that all these fractions are "very badly documented". Coin should be listed after ROMA 125.
