RIC VII, ARLES [after 233], CONSTANTINE I, UNLISTED REVERSE LEGEND [IRREGULAR COIN]

  

OBVERSE

CONSTAN-TINVSAVG [CONSTANTINVS AVG]; head r., laur.

REVERSE

DNCONSTANTINIAVG [D N CONSTANTINI AVG]; in laurel wreath VOT/XX. T[crescent]A in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED REVERSE LEGEND. Specimen similar to ARLES 233 (officina T not attested) except for absence of "MAX" in rev. legend. RIC lists rev. legend D N CONSTANTINI AVG only for AQULEIA 64 (p. 401). Good portrait but clumsy style of reverse (note the lack of an axis of symmetry in m.m.). Possibly an ancient imitation. Could be listed after ARLES 233.
