UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this type only for Constantine [SISCIA 216]. Note that this specimen is a fourrée coin, obviously an ancient imitation, but its existence suggests that the official issue also existed. Should be listed before SISCIA 216.

NOTES

Aureus [fourrée]. Weight 2.60 g (sic!); diameter 19 mm. Coin sold on Pecunem auction 12 (lot 746) in February 2014 for EUR 550.
