This coin is exactly the same as the common RIC VI Antioch 112a, except this one has a delta in the left field of the reverse. Unfortunately it is not in the best of condition.

A.D. 309
23x25mm    6.3gm
IMP C GAL VAL MAXIMIANVS P F AVG; Laureate head right.
GENIO IMPERATORIS; Genius standing facing, head left, modius on head, naked but for chlamys across left shoulder, liquors flowing from patera in right hand, cornucopiae in left; Δ in left field, O over E in right.
