REVERSE LEGEND VARIETY. For Hanniballianus' coins different rev legend break makes a new entry in RIC (cf. CONSTANTINOPLE 147 [break SE-C; NAC 98, lot 1451, 1.67 g] and CONSTANTINOPLE 148 [break SEC-V; Agora Auction 53, lot 232, 1.39 g, 17.8 mm]). Therefore, this variety with unbroken rev. legend should be listed in RIC under separate number after CONSTANTINOPLE 148.
