REVERSE

PROVIDEN-TIAAVGG [PROVIDENTIA AVGG]; the four princes sacrificing over tripod before archway in seven-turreted enclosure. *SIS in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists similar type for Constantius and Galerius Maximian (p. 461). But note also seven turrets on reverse instead of six, which makes a separate issue. Coin should be listed before SISCIA 54a.
