Helmeted and cuirassed bust of Constantine to left, holding spear over right shoulder and shield; around traces of imitative legend and of the undertype. Rev. Two victories holding inscribed shield over altar; around traces of imitative legend and of the undertype. Cf. RIC 50 (Siscia, for possible prototype).
