UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC does not list Licinius' II coins from London Beata series (p. 110-115). Note error in rev. legend: BEAT instead of BEATA. Note also clumsy lettering ("L" and "I" are very similar). Probably an ancient imitation. Could be noted after LONDON 235.

NOTES

Coin sold on eBay in September 2013 for $27.
