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. 13).

NOTES

Æ medallion. Weight 33.16 g; diameter 37.2 mm. From the Bibliothèque nationale de France (IFN-11353215).

Other specimens:

- from Gnecchi II (plate 124, no. 7); weight 34.25 g; diameter 37 mm [click for picture].
