RIC VII, LONDON [after 300], CONSTANTINE II, UNLISTED ISSUE [Dot over PLON]

  

OBVERSE

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

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. Similar to LONDON 296, but RIC does not list issue with dot over PLON in mintmark. However, dot in arch is mentioned in footnotes 293 and 296 on p. 116 (for Constantine's I and Constantine's II coins). The relatively large number of known specimens suggests, that dot is not an accidental die crack or an engraver's error. Coin should be listed after LONDON 300.
