Constantius II FTR horseman from Siscia

This is an unlisted module size. RIC only lists this issue as an Ӕ3 (18x19mm 2.6gm) while this coin is an Ӕ2. There are other issues like this recorded in RIC though. For example, Thessalonica has a FTR issue that is identical except the size- Thessalonica 123 is an Ӕ3 and Thessalonica 129 is an Ӕ2.

Constantius II
A.D. 348-350
22x23mm   4.4gm
D N CONSTAN-TIVS P F AVG; pearl diademed, draped & cuirassed bust right.
FEL TEMP REPARATIO; Emperor in military dress stg. l., holding phoenix on globe and standard with Chi-Rho on banner; in stern sits Victory, steering ship.
