OBVERSE

CONSTANTINVSIVNNOBC [CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB C]; bust r., laur., dr., cuir.

REVERSE

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

NOT IN RIC

MINTMARK VARIETY. Coin similar to ARLES 261 except for dot in m.m. According to RIC, this dot appears not until the next issue [ARLES 280-285 (p. 264)] for which Caesarum nostrorum type is not attested. It could be an engraver's error or an unlisted part of that later - and rare - issue. Further investigations needed.

NOTES

Weight 2.71 g. From Rupert Pflaum's collection.
