For Arcadius at Constantinople the obverse legend always spells out the whole title "AVGVSTVS", but often with "I" for "T": "AVGVSIVS", another. Reference works do not seem to acknowledge this. Is the substitution because the pronunciation was changing? Elsewhere, the usual "AVG" is found.
Cayon G-54 (1 photo, Her), T-57 (2 photos, Ant, Ale), MM-20
(0), A-43 (0), A-45 (1 photo, Con). (A-43 is without cross in filed
left, A-45 is with cross.)
Note, Cayon 96 for Valentinian I (1 photo, page 2695) is an error. It is really this type for Valentinian II.
