A Post-Christmas Challenge - Help Identifying Childhood Roman Coin Collection

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Back home for Christmas and I ran across my childhood Roman coin collection.

 

I'd be really grateful for some details on these coins if you have any clues!

 

Best

Hello and welcome!

 

If you could provide larger and more closely cropped pictures it may assist in identifying as otherwise we'd only be able to provide very general attributions, if any.

 

These are off the top of my head so may not be the most accurate

 

#2 c. 350, probably Constantius Gallus, "Fel Temp Reparatio", Soldier spearing fallen horseman

#3 c. 320s, probably Constantine/family, Campgate

#5,6 c. 360s-80s?... Emperor dragging captive

#7 c. 337, Commemorative of the founding of the City of Rome (issued in conjunction with a coin establishing Constantinople as the new Eastern Capital)

#8 c. late 330s - early 340s. Commemorative of the Death of Constantine (depicted veiled). He's riding in a quadriga towards heaven as the hand of God reaches down to him

#9 Emperor dragging captive?

#15 Antoninianus of Carinus

That's fantastic - thank you very much!

 

I tried hard to get better shots but the lens on my camera is terrible with macro... Don't think I'll be able to get a better resolution soon

 

Thanks again
