[CORRECTION]. RIC lists for TRIER 383 bust I2 (i.e. draped). Actually Constantine II is wearing trabea and bust is similar to consular bust K4 except for globe decorated with Victory and sceptre without eagle. Listed in RMBT (p. 70, no. 87). Variety with bust type I2 is not listed in RMBT and probably does not exist.
