RIC VII, TRIER [after 520], CONSTANTINE II, UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND AND BUST TYPE [B5 l.] [IRREGULAR COIN]

  

OBVERSE

CONSTANTINVSIVN [CONSTANTINVS IVN]; bust l., laur., cuir. [B5 l.].

REVERSE

GLOREXERCIT [GLOR (sic!) EXERCIT (sic!)]; two soldiers, helmeted, stg. front, looking at each other; each holding spear and rests hand on shield; between them two standards. TRP in exergue.

NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED OBVERSE LEGEND AND BUST TYPE - B5 l. Obv. legend and bust type are not attested for this issue (p. 214). Note crude style on obv. and shortened legends: CONSTANTINVS IVN instead of CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB C and GLOR EXERCIT instead of GLORIA EXERCITVS. Obviously an ancient imitation. See also CORRIGENDA, VOL. VII, p. 214. Coin could be noted after TRIER 520.

NOTES
