Next is a list of all the mints for this type, with links to the mint further down this page:

London, Treveri (Trier), Lugdunum (Lyons), TicinumAquileia, RomeSiscia, Serdica, ThessalonicaHeraclea, NicomediaCyzicusAntiochAlexandria. [Carthage and Ostia are also in RIC volume VI, but neither minted this type.]

Distinguishing Maximian from Galerius.  Using only the legend this can be tricky. Both used "MAXIMIANVS" in their legends. Here is a page explaining the differences in legends.

Note:  This page lacks images of at least a dozen common emperor and mint combinations. It does not mean they are rare; it just means I don't happen to have that combination to show here.
