UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this type for Diocletian, Maximian Herculius and Galerius Maximian [all very rare! - R4, R3, R3] (p. 198). General note about this issue from p. 150: "The fractions, all rare, are safely attributable to Trier on grounds of portrait style. Their 'vota' reverses commemorate the joint vicennalia and decennalia of the Augusti and Caesars in and after 302. The issue as a whole - folles and fractions - falls c. 302-3". Listed in Zschucke BTP (no. 3.13). Coin should be listed after TREVERI 566.
