RIC VI, SISCIA [after 60b], MAXIMIAN HERCULIUS, REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY

  

OBVERSE

MAXIMIA-NVSAVG [MAXIMIANVS AVG]; head r., laur.

REVERSE

VIRTVSM-ILITVM [VIRTVS MILITVM]; the four princes sacrificing over tripod before archway in six-turreted enclosure. *SIS in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY. Coin similar to SISCIA 60b except for rev. legend break: VIRTVSM-ILITVM instead of VIRTVS-MILITVM. 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 60b.
