RIC VI, SISCIA [before 61], GALERIUS MAXIMIAN, REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY

  

OBVERSE

MAXIMIAN-VSNOBC [MAXIMIANVS NOB C]; 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 61 and SISCIA 62 except for rev. legend break: VIRTVSM-ILITVM instead of VIRTVS-MILITVM or VIRTV-SMILITVM. 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 before SISCIA 61.

NOTES

Argenteus. Weight 3.26 g; diameter 17 mm. Coin sold on Pecunem 24 (lot 652) in November 2014 for EUR 260.
