UNLISTED FOR RULER, BUST TYPE D. RIC lists this issue for Constantine and Maximinus. General note from p. 349: "[...] this issue [...] is also the last of the period. [...] Soli Invicto Comiti was probably struck [...] mainly in Constantine's name, included rare varieties for Maximinus. [...] the coins are scarce. The issue, which was comparatively small, falls in the first half of 313". Note that the description in RIC is probably incorrect (see CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 388-390). Coin should be listed after ROMA 373.
