MINTMARK VARIETY. Specimen similar to LONDINIUM 121a except for star over T in left field. RIC lists mintmark with stars over both field letters [LONDINIUM 128-132], but the only obv. legend attested for Constantine is CONSTANTINVS P F AVG. It could be an unlisted mintmark or unlisted type from LONDINIUM 128-132 with one star obliterated or simply an engraver's error.
