OBVERSE

IMPCLICLICINNIVSSPFAVG [IMP C LIC LICINNIVS P F AVG] [1a]; head r., laur.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. RIC lists only legend 1b: IMP C LIC LICINIVS [single "N"] P F AVG [ANTIOCHIA 169a]. Note that only officina I is attested, so it could be an error in RIC. Note also that m.m. pattern for this issue is given incorrectly: CORRIGENDA, VOL. VI, p. 644. Coin should be listed before ANTIOCHIA 169a.

NOTES

Sold on eBay in August 2008 for USD 12.50 and should be in author's collection, but the coin never arrived.
