UNLISTED ISSUE. Æ medallions of the rulers of the First Tetrarchy with three Monetae on reverse are omitted both in RIC V/2 and RIC VI. Apparently most of these coins belong to the pre-reform coinage, but the present author decided to include them in this supplement. Note that the weight of individual specimens could vary significantly (from less than 20 g to 40 g and more). Listed in Gnecchi II (p. 130, no. 3).

NOTES

Æ medallion. Weight 21.19 g; diameter 33 mm. From the American Numismatic Society Collection (reg. no. 1944.100.3163).
