NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Constantine and Maximinus (TREVERI 841b, which probably belongs to the next sub-group). The unexpected presence of Maxentius probably shows a short-lived turn in Constamntine's politics. See: Georges Gautier, "Un nummus inédit frappé à Trèves en 310 ap. J.-C. au nom de Maxence", Schweizer Münzblätter 2019, vol. 60, no. 237, pp. 9-17. Coin should be listed after TREVERI 843.
