RIC VII, CONSTANTINOPLE [after 99], CONSTANTINE I, UNLISTED OBVERSE

   

OBVERSE

CONSTANTINVSMAXAVG [CONSTANTINVS MAX AVG]; bust r., rosette-diadem, cuir.

REVERSE

CONSTANTINVSAVG [CONSTANTINVS AVG]; four standards. CONS in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OBVERSE. RIC lists this type in "Addenda and Corrigenda" as CONSTANTINOPLE 99A (p. 718-19). Note unusual bust type: E8, but cuir. only. However, specimen described by Bruun is known only from Efrem Pegan's collection of casts and has obv. legend CONSTANTI-NVS MAX AVG (break I-N), so it is worth to present here another specimen from the same issue. Coin should be listed after CONSTANTINOPLE 99.
