UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Constantine I and Licinius I (p. 248-249). However, this coin may be also regarded as a hybrid. See footnote 144 on p. 248: "Hybrids: obv. 7b (B4) off. P in V [Vienna], with rev SOl like a Claritas; genuine Constantine II obv. with wrong rev legend, struck in wrong officina". Could be listed after ARLES 148.
