RIC VII, LYONS [before 46], CONSTANTINE I, UNLISTED BUST TYPE [L1 l.]

   

OBVERSE

CONSTANTINVSAVG [CONSTANTINVS AVG]; bust l., laur., dr., cuir., raising r. hand [L1 l.].

REVERSE

SOLIINVIC-TOCOMITI [SOLI INVICTO COMITI]; Sol stg. l., chlamys across l. shoulder, raising r. hand, globe in l. hand. T[F] in left field, star in right field. PLG in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE - L1 l. Not attested for obv. legend 1i (p. 125). Note that presence of drapery is disputable and therefore the attribution is uncertain. However, compare this bust type with bust type L2 l. on LYONS [after 36] and LYONS 46 (both pictures from Bastien Lyon I, plate LXIV). Coin should be listed before LYONS 46.

NOTES

Coin sold on eBay in August 2015 for GBP 36.92 [Thanks to the collaboration of Mariusz Graczyk].
