View Categories Home > Catalog > |Roman Coins| > |The Tetrarchy| > |Licinius I| > RL89684Licinius I, 11 November 308 - 18 September 324 A.D. Very unusual mint error! Poor letter spacing on the reverse forced the engraver to make the final two letters extraordinarily small and curve back up to the exergue line. On many examples of this type the last two letters extend into the exergue to the mintmark. This engraver had his own idea of how to handle the problem.
