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). Not listed in Gnecchi.

NOTES

Æ medallion. Weight 19.28 g; diameter 30 mm. Coin sold on Roma Numismatics E-Sale 23 (lot 622) in January 2016 for GBP 420.
