UNLISTED ISSUE. RIC lists commemorative issue for Constantius with similar rev. type, but with different bust type and rev. legend MEMORIA FELIX [TREVERI 789 and TREVERI 790]. The present specimen, minted probably in 306, could be listed before TREVERI 789, but perhaps belongs to the earlier group.
