This combination of obverse legend and type is not described by the authors of RIC (it should be legend 1d with obverse J). Huvelin did not describe the type either in her NZ article, but Hubert Cloke and Lee Toone in their new work, The London Mint of Constantius & Constantine, describe the type based on one example known to them from the Bourton-on-the-Water Hoard (no. 328).
