UNLISTED FOR RULER, BUST TYPE E5. RIC lists this issue only for Constantine II [CONSTANTINOPLE 135A, in "Addenda and Corrigenda" (p. 719)], Constans [CONSTANTINOPLE 136] and Dalmatius [CONSTANTINOPLE 136A, in "Addenda and Corrigenda" (p. 719)]. Note that it could be a portrait of Constantine II. In that case it is variant of RIC VIII CONSTANTINOPLE 15 or RIC VIII CONSTANTINOPLE 16, unlisted for rev. legend. Otherwise coin should be listed before CONSTANTINOPLE 135A.
