Another Early Constantine Helmet with a Diadem Style Band

 

A further example of this interesting bust type¬†variant has come to light (see post below – “Have his Laurels Slipped?”. This time the diadem or band on the helmet seems to have pellets along its length making it look very much like a diadem.

The coin is RIC VI (London) 202 variant : helmet decoration ( 5.12g. 22 x 21 mm 6h.).

 

A rare variant with a helmet decorated with a diadem.
