Excellent, thanks for the link! I hadn't thought this representation of Hercules had been so common on coins. Great job by the Kassel museum.

I'm partial to the late roman Hercules types myself, and I've got a couple of die links in my collection to those Hesse-Kassel specimens.

The grey-blue background ones are theirs, and the white background ones are mine. The Constantine one seems to be an obv+rev die match, and the Daia rev only. Both are unlisted officinas.

The 3rd cent. AD copy by Glykon of the original (Eleventh Labour of Hercules, apples of the Hesperides) by Lysippos (called the Farnese Hercules, now in the Archeological museum of Naples):

Thanks for posting this link, I really enjoyed reading it (with my limited German) and seeing these coins. Is the entire Hesse-Kassel collection published? It must be pretty extensive to have so many examples of this one type of reverse.

Here are a couple of my coins: the sept sev a double die match for Inv Nr 696 and the Caracalla a match for the Gorny & Mosch referenced for the Septimius Severus 696. Different reverse dies(the Gorny on coinarchives.com much better specimen).
