RIC VI, TICINUM [after 129], CONSTANTINE, UNLISTED REVERSE

  

OBVERSE

CONSTANTINVSPFAVG [CONSTANTINVS P F AVG]; bust r., laur., cuir.

REVERSE

SOLIINVI-C-TOCOMITI [SOLI INVICTO COMITI]; Sol advanced l., r. foot on captive std. to l., chlamys over l. shoulder and flying, r. raised, l. holding up globe. TT in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED REVERSE. RIC VI does not list for Ticinum rev. with Sol advancing l. and captive. However, Bruun in RIC VII writes on p. 355 about rare reverse of Sol, "Sol advancing l., captive", which in his opinion belongs "to the earlier part of the PT issue, i.e. to the time before the war against Daza" (i.e. to the coinage covered by RIC VI). Coin should be listed after TICINUM 129.
