OBVERSE

FLIVLCONSTANTIVSNOBC [FL IVL CONSTANTIVS NOB C]; bust r., laur., dr., cuir.

REVERSE

PROVIDEN-TIAECAESS [PROVIDENTIAE CAESS]; camp gate, two turrets, no doors, star above, varying number of stone layers. Dot in arch. PLON in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED ISSUE. Variant with dot in arch is mentioned in footnotes 293 and 296 on p. 116 (for Constantine's I and Constantine's II coins). Relatively large number of known specimens suggests a separate issue or at least sub-issue. Note also that bust type B4 (turned r.) is not attested with obv. legend FL IVL CONSTANTIVS NOB C. Bust type is listed in Cloke-Toone (10.02.007) but variant with dot in arch is not mentioned. Coin should be listed in RIC after LONDON 300.
