SMTSE in exergue
15mm x 16mm, 1.49g
RIC VII, 230 (S)

Note: In the footnotes in RIC VII p. 530, the differentiation of the issues of Vrbs Roma and Constantinopolis are explained. "The module appears to constitute the only difference between this issue and the two preceding ones. The coins listed clearly belong to an issue later than those referred to the earlier series, but the FH (Fayoum Hoard) coins have, of course been out of reach for the author. The weight range for the UR and Cp coins is 1.20-2.00g and there is no heavier Gloria (Exercitvs) coin of the 1 standard type in the entire issue. Weights of 27 coins have been recorded, the average weight being 1.52g. It is quite possible that some of these UR and Cp coins in fact belong to the preceding series."

Note: On this very interesting example the obverse legend is somewhat blundered, although the style and fabric are exactly as one would expect from Thessalonica at this time. Thus, I suspect this is actually an official issue with an obverse legend error.
