NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED FOR RULER, BUST TYPE E4. RIC lists this issue only for Constantine II [CONSTANTINOPLE 135A, in "Addenda and Corrigenda" (p. 719)], Constans [CONSTANTINOPLE 136] and Dalmatius [CONSTANTINOPLE 136A, in "Addenda and Corrigenda" (p. 719)]. Note that it could be a portrait of Constantine II (see long hair on neck). In that case it is variant of RIC VIII CONSTANTINOPLE 15-16, unlisted for the bust type. Otherwise coin should be listed before CONSTANTINOPLE 135A.
