Very nice coin, hard to find in good condition. A few more Diocletian examples for your "collection"

One from the first officina :



One from the fourth officina, Bastien 16 (1 ex.) which has a die match with two issues (bastien 16/17)





One from Rome mint (RIC.183).

Yes, they are hard to find, plus they are neat because they are early issues, before Diocletian established the Tetrarchy.
