RIC VII, LYONS 150, CONSTANTINE II, [CORRECTION]

  

OBVERSE

CONSTANTINVSIVNNC [CONSTANTINVS IVN N C]; bust l., laur., cuir., Victory on globe in r. hand, pugio (parazonium) in l. hand..

REVERSE

BEATATRANQVILLITAS [BEATA TRANQVILLITAS]; globe set on altar inscribed VO/TIS/XX in three lines; above, three stars. C in left field, R in right field. PLG in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

[CORRECTION]. According to Bastien Lyon II (footnote 3 on p. 152) LYONS 150 does not exist because RIC describes this type with mappa in l. hand, not parazonium. Listed in Bastien Lyon II (p. 152, no. 93). In fact, the controversy concerns only the accuracy of the description. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, pp. 89-90.
