UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND - 1b. RIC lists for this type only shorter legend 1a: IMP C DIOCLETIANVS P F AVG (p. 666; cf. example of ALEXANDRIA 41). Footnote 7 on p. 666: "Voetter (see also Gerin Cat., Diocl., nos. 16-17) recorded the obv. Imp C C Val Diocletianus P F Aug (head r. and l.) with this rev.: too doubtful to be included here". Coin should be listed after ALEXANDRIA 42.
