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. 125, no. 16 or 18; both types are not illustrated).

NOTES

Æ medallion. Weight 22.79 g. Sold on Jean Elsen auction 128 (lot 398) in March 2016 for EUR 360.
