RIC VI, SISCIA [after 65b], GALERIUS MAXIMIAN, REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY

MAXIMIA-NVSNOBC [MAXIMIANVS NOB C]; head r., laur.

REVERSE

VICTORI-AAVGG [VICTORIA AVGG]; three-turreted camp-gate, open, without doors. *SIS in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY. Coin similar to SISCIA 65b except for rev. legend break: VICTORI-AAVGG instead of VICTOR-IAAVGG. 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 65b.
