Constantly

008copy

05/15/09 - Many people don't know that I have a rather large coin collection. This coin is neither the best or most expensive in my collection, but it is by far the oldest. When I purchased it I was told it depicted Constantine the Great. After some research I now believe it really shows one of his 3 sons (Constantine II, Constans, or Constantius). It was minted in Barcelona, so my best guess is that it is Constantine II, who ruled in Hispania. At any rate, it would have been minted some time between 306 and 361 A.D.
