NOT IN RIC

[CORRECTION]. RIC erroneously lists for this type obv. legend 1b (IMP MAXENTIVS P F AVG) (p. 377). Actually, obv legend is 1a (IMP C MAXENTIVS P F AVG) like for ROMA 204. So this coin is in fact ROMA 204, unlisted officina Q. Listed in Drost (p. 309, no. 88) with this correction. Note that according to description in RIC pediment contains Dioscuri. However, Drost distinguishes four different decorations of pediment.
