UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Obv. legend LICINIVS P AVG is attested only for the earlier issues (TRIER 250, TRIER 259 and TRIER 267). However, Bruun mentions in footnote 282 on p. 189 that "CG [Voetter's Gerin Catalogue] records the obv. legend LICINIVS P AVG, both officinae, not to be found. Maur. [Maurice, Numismatique constantinienne]" i, pp. 434 f., rev. VII. 3, gives also a LICINIVS P AVG in P [Paris] and Vo [Voetter] with this bust: in neither collection". Coin should be listed after TRIER 283.
