REVERSE

SOLIINV-I-CTOCOMITI [SOLI INVICTO COMITI]; Sol stg. l., fold of chlamys spread under l. arm, globe in l. hand, raising r. hand. PARL in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER. RIC lists this type of rev. only for Constantine I (p. 237). Note that description in RIC could be misleading. The "fold of chlamys" sometimes means chlamys which Bruun usually describes as "flying under l. arm" (e.g. ARLES 19-20). There is also no mention about globe in l. hand and raised r. hand. For comparison, see picture of ARLES 46 (Sol stg. r. with chlamys across l. shoulder). Coin should be listed after ARLES 39.
