SPES REIPVBL


A rare reverse from London. This example is RIC VI 241 with the obverse legend:
CONSTANTINVS PF AVG
Unlisted in RIC, but known from a number of examples, is the same type with the obverse legend:
CONSTANTINVS P AVG
Two examples of SPES REIPVBL were discovered in the Sarzeau hoard. One of each obverse legend type, they are linked by a reverse die match and are illustrated in the hoard report.
