RIC VI, TREVERI [after 476b], GALERIUS MAXIMIAN, UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND [UNLISTED BUST TYPE?]

  

OBVERSE

GAVALMAXIMIANVSNOBILC [GA VAL MAXIMIANVS NOBIL C]; head r., laur., dr. l. shoulder.

REVERSE

MSACRAAVG-GETCAESSNN [M SACRA AVGG ET CAESS NN]; Moneta stg. l., r. holding scales, l. cornucopiae. Star in right field. ATR in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND [UNLISTED BUST TYPE?]. Obv. legend not attested in RIC VI. Possibly an engraver's error. It is unclear if the presence of drapery on l. shoulder should be treated as a minor variety of bust type A or makes a separate bust type. Note that Sutherland only rarely distinguishes these two types (cf. bust types A and B on p. 175). See also from the same issue TREVERI 461 and TREVERI 487. Coin should be listed after TREVERI 476b.

NOTES

Weight 9.89 g. From "foudefollis" collection.
