Variety illustrated below:  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. 

Type 16 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 Antioch under 67, in error, is this type), V2 -- (but 3 Roma varieties!), T-58 (2, Con, Nic).
