Variety:  RIC Ant 44, plate T-XIV.9, and Nic 29 plate T-XVI.2, has the figure with no globe and her left hand on her knee, "turretted" or "head right." They call it Constantinopolis, so it is a variety of this type, type 16. Here is an example for Gratian.

This type is often not distinguished properly from Type 15, which has the same legend and general appearance, but head and globe left.

Cayon G-66 (no photo there, but the one from Ant under 67, in error, is this type), V2 -- (but 3 Roma varieties!), T-58 (2, Con, Nic).
