NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this rev. type (Genius with modius on head) only for Galerius Maximian and Maximian Herculius (p. 129). For the difference between "modius on head" and "head towered" compare examples of LONDINIUM 85 (modius on head) and LONDINIUM 89b (head towered). Note, however, that this difference is sometimes not clear and Cloke-Toone (p. 46-7, 136) combines both types of rev. under one catalogue number. Listed in Cloke-Toone (5.01.006) together with LONDINIUM 87. Should be listed in RIC after LONDINIUM 84.
