RIC IX pg. 224, note 46; cf. P. Bastien, "Y a-t-il eu un monnayage d'or au nom de Maxime a Constantinople?" CENB 20/3 (July-September 1983), pg. 51-55; Depeyrot 38/7. Extremely rare - only three known.
Maximus was a Spaniard who rose to the command of the troops in Britain, and he fought successfully against Picts ad Scots. Elevated by the British army, he crossed to Gaul where he overthrew Gratian. He then invaded Italy, but he was ultimately defeated by Theodosius I. This extremely rare coin confirms that Maximus' elevation was recognized by Theodosius, however briefly.
