OBVERSE

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

REVERSE

DNCONSTANTINIMAXAVG [D N CONSTANTINI MAX AVG]; in laurel wreath VOT/XX. •S*AR in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED ISSUE. Coin similar to ARLES 252 except for dot in m.m. The existence of other specimens with the same m.m. proves that it is unlikely an engraver's error. Additionally, in footnote 257 on p. 262 Bruun mentions one more specimen from Milan (ex Gerin Collection) "with •S*AR". Coin should be listed after ARLES 263.
