Note Not a complete listing. C. Clay (forum ancient coins, 2016, topic 109181.0) pointed out that (1) all the coins of Gallus of Seleucia are from the same obverse die, (2) the die reads ΓΑ ΙΟΥΛΙ (and not ΓΑΙ ΟΥAΙ as stated in RPC IX) and therefore, that Gallus is wrongly given the nomen Julius (instead of Vibius), the same way Volusian is given the name Sabinus (see RPC IX, p. 274). These errors in the imperial names might suggest an issue early in Gallus’ reign.
Correction Corrected coin-type (post publication)
