UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this type only for Constantius. Listed in King (p. 418, no. 54). Note that bust on no. 54 is described in King as "laur. dr., r.", but picture 54 (d) on plate 36 shows coin from the same dies as specimen in question which apparently has bust draped and cuirassed (like no. 52 in King). Coin should be listed in RIC after ROMA 56.
