The Constantine Hat strikes back

Don't think this was known before? Same serie or producers than the later empire types, Eudoxia, Flavius Victor, Hannibalian, etc ... and module is wrong, too large, like an earlier Follis.

I suppose I should be flattered that my still currently unique coin is being copied. Must be someone who has at least seen my site or the discussion of the coin since they decided what the obverse legend "should be".

And of course, don't skip all of the sections at the bottom of that page, since that's how you get to all of the coins...
