UNLISTED ISSUE. According to RIC, this coin "bears a type proper to Constantine and should probably be regarded as a half-blundered hybrid" (footnote 2 on p. 133). But since that time more Maximinus' coins with types "proper to Constantine" have come to light, unfortunately all are very rare. The separate problem is an obvious error on reverse (F (retrograde)|T instead of T|F). Despite it, coin could be regarded as a sole example of an otherwise unknown issue and listed after LONDINIUM 131.
