Help identifing this coin


Recommended Posts

Like "every story has two sides" a coin has obverse & reverse sides, with that in mind try this http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=3306&pos=20 for starters. It will at least give you the description of the reverse, just the letter in the field that looks like an R(really the Greek letter Gamma) is wrong, yours is H(Eta). Try posting a picture of the obverse.

RIC VII 3 is one attribution / classification for this mint /reverse type (and all field letters) of Constantine I


RIC VII 4 is the other - for the same, but with Licinius I on the obverse instead.


One of the most prolifically issued coins of the 310s.
