Note: Coins listed by RIC as marked T // XXI and Q // XXI are of Siscia (RIC 817) not Cyzicus.

RIC erroneously cites Cohen 918 (consular bust), instead of Cohen 919 (helmeted, with shield and spear).

Varieties "listed" by RIC = 2
Varieties = 5

Remarkably, a reverse not listed by Pink for Cyzicus.


Chronology: Pink's 3rd emission of Cyzicus, 280 CE.
