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 30 g and more). Listed in Gnecchi II (p. 124-125, no. 10).

NOTES

Æ medallion. Weight 29.70 g; diameter 38 mm. From Gnecchi II (plate 124, no. 5)
