RIC VII, SISCIA [after 203], CONSTANTIUS II, UNLISTED BUST TYPE

  

OBVERSE

FLIVLCONSTANTIVSNOBC [FL IVL CONSTANTIVS NOB C]; bust l., laur., dr., cuir., with globe.

REVERSE

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

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE. Not attested in RIC VII. Similar to M1 l. but bust is cuirassed and draped. RIC lists for Constantius II bust B4 l. (cf. SISCIA 203) which has no detail similar to globe. Note, however, that it could be an unintentional result of cleaning/tooling and this attribution is highly uncertain. Coin could be listed after SISCIA 203.

NOTES

Weight 2.80 g; diameter 19 mm. Sold on eBay in November 2010 for USD 2.87.
