Vetranio legend, portrait erroneously Constantius II. Centenionalis
Vetranio legend, portrait erroneously Constantius II. 350 AD. Centenionalis, 4.66g. (5h). Siscia, . Obv: D N VETRA - ═IO P F AVG Bust of Constantius II right, unbearded, pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed, seen from front; star before portrait, A behind. Rx: CONCORDI[A] - MILITVM Emperor standing left, with star above his head, holding two standards topped by Chi Rho banners, .─SIS. in exergue, A in left field. Cf. RIC 285 and Cohen 1. Mint State.

By mistake, the legend of Vetranio was here engraved around a portrait of Constantius II: this unbearded and pearl-diademed portrait cannot depict Vetranio, who was otherwise always bearded and laureate in this issue.
