REVERSE

CAESARVMNOSTRORVM [CAESARVM NOSTRORVM]; in laurel wreath VOT/X. Q*AR in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this issue only for Crispus and Constantine II (p. 262). Note that this coin is a hybrid (VOT X for Constantius II is highly unexpected). It suggests, as Bruun said, "that the vota coinage and the Providentiae coinage overlapped" (p. 230). However, the obv. legend FL CONSTANTIVS NOB CAES is not attested in RIC VII! Coin should be listed after ARLES 263.

NOTES

Weight 3.00 g; diameter 19 mm. Coin sold on eBay in April 2017 for GBP 227.
