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. Note an obvious error on reverse (F (retrograde)|T instead of T|F). Listed in Cloke-Toone (6.03.006; this coin). Should be listed in RIC after LONDINIUM 131.
