Constantine II, AE4, Trier, Officina 1
Constantine II, AE4, Trier, Officina 1 CONSTANTINVS IVN NO C Laureate, draped, cuirassed bust right VIRTVS-CAESS Campgate with seven rows, three turrets, open doors, no star above, all rows of blocks alternating slashes and backslashes PTR in exergue 16mm, 1.63g RIC VII, -- Ex Keith Metzer Collection, October 2003 Note: RIC doesn't list any examples with this reverse legend, so I am not certain when this coin was produced. Also, the obverse legend is unattested entirely, so this piece may end up being an imitative issue of convincingly good style. There is an example in Victor Failmezger's book, "Roman Bronze Coins", of a Constantine II VIRTVS CAESS campgate (#362CII), but does not have the diagonal lines or open doors. Instead, it has pellets in each block. I would appreciate hearing of other examples from this series as it needs research and documentation.
