UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND. Not attested for this issue (p. 190). But cf. footnote 312 on p. 191: "Some of the obv. busts recorded for Constantine II have not been found: CONSTANTINVS IVN N C • COS II, bust K3 l. (CG) and the same bust with CONSTANTINVS IVN N COS II (Maur., loc. cit., rev. V. 43 and CG)." Cf. also LYONS 143. Note error in rev. legend and poor lettering. Coin could be regarded as an ancient imitation. Not listed in RMBT. Should be listed before TRIER 312.
