UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Not attested for this issue (p. 481). Note rev. with Jupiter holding thunderbolt (see example of SISCIA 214 with shorter rev. legend CONSTANTINVS AVG). Obv. legend IMP CONSTANTINVS AVG is known for RIC VII SISCIA 1, but rev. is slightly different - with Jupiter holding globe (see RIC VII, plate 12, no. 1). Coin should be listed before SISCIA 213.
