Constantine / Aquileia - detail


I love the reverse of this coin. Lovely style and dramatically composed, just so. The figure of Constantine is properly modelled, with detailed boots and armor; wonderfully rendered horse; and great detail like the flowing cape and tail. Nice example of 4th-century numismatic art and late Roman coinage. I know this is a cliche, but it really does look nicer in hand.
