Member of the Constantinian family facing left, CONSTANTINOP around / Two soldiers standing, each holding a standard, crude GLORIA EXERCITVS around, TR below. 13mm, 1.2 gram. Found in Britain.Interesting confused coin - the bust and the reverse are derived from the regular Constantinian bronzes, while the inscription is from the CONSTANTINOPOLIS commemoratives.These imitations very produced in the 330's - the tiny CONSTANTINOPOLIS minimi, like this one, are extremely rare and difficult to find, especially in such condition.
