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. 128, no. 11).

NOTES

Æ medallion. Weight 31.44 g; diameter 34 mm. Sold on Nomos auction 5 (lot 255) in October 2011 for CHF 190,000.

Other specimens:

- from Gnecchi II (plate 126, no. 10); weight 30.85 g; diameter 36 mm [click for picture].
