Gallienus Legionary Antoninianus
Gallienus Legionary Antoninianus, 260 AD, Mediolanum.
Obv: GALLIENVS AVG, radiate and cuirassed bust right.
Rev: LEG IIXX VI P VII F, Capricorn right.
21-23 mm, 2.08 g
RIC V, Part 1, 362

The 18. Legion was destroyed with Varus and never reformed - the reverse legend is a celator error and should be XXII, Legion 22 Primagenia, which was stationed in Mogontiacum.

Are you sure it's cellator error and not a convention of the period as the 22nd legion coins of Carausius are mostly IIXX.
