UNLISTED REVERSE TYPE. RIC lists for Licinius' II coins from this issue two types of reverses: both with Jupiter stg. left, not right. The description in RIC is not very precise, but probably in both cases Jupiter is holding thunderbolt up, not at hip level (see example of ARLES 160). Coin should be listed after ARLES 160.
