UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. RIC lists only shorter variant ended with ...N C (p. 259). Note also footnote 5 on p. 258: "Maur. [Maurice, Numismatique constantinienne] ii, p. 79 erroneously attributes to the Caesars the fuller - NOB C legend". Apparently, Maurice was right. Listed in Bastien Lyon I (p. 233, no. 456). Coin should be listed before LUGDUNUM 232.
