RIC VI, SISCIA [after 40], DIOCLETIAN, REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY

  

OBVERSE

DIOCLETI-ANVSAVG [DIOCLETIANVS AVG]; head r., laur.

REVERSE

VICTORI-ASARMATICA [VICTORIA SARMATICA]; the four princes sacrificing over tripod before archway in eight-turreted enclosure.

NOT IN RIC

REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY. Specimen similar to SISCIA 40 except for rev. legend break VICTORI-ASARMATICA instead of VICTORIA-SARMATICA. For silver issues from Siscia different rev. legend break makes sometimes a separate entry in RIC (cf. SISCIA 61 and SISCIA 62). Therefore coin could be listed after SISCIA 40.
