Note: The pellets and division of the word MILITVM indicate different issues and the mint was closed during part of the reign, as per the footnote on p. 253. Also, this example appears to me to be much more in line with the style and fabric of the Antioch mint, however, RIC does not attest this obverse legend used at Antioch.

Note: The obverse legend error is quite clear and unambiguous. The G should be a C, but it is very obviously a G looking at the coin in hand.
