Constantius II Very Fine

Constantius II was the last surviving son of Constantine the Great. Constantius was named after his grandfather, The Tetrach who actually came to Britain and died at York. After Constantine the Great died in A.D. 337 Constantius II had to share the rule of the empire with his two brothers. But after a few years of warfare Constantius II emerged as sole ruler of the entire Roman Empire. Constantius II was involved in many wars throughout his reign, putting down rebellions and defending the empire against invaders. This is the theme of the coins we offer from the reign of this interesting and successful ruler. They are bronze coins with the reverse design of two Roman soldiers either side of one or two standards – the legend reads : ‘GLORIA EXERCITVS’. Approximately this translates as ‘To the Glory of the Army’! On the obverse is a profile portrait bust of Constantius II himself. He died in 361 A.D. on the way to fight another rival, who became Julian II! We can offer these coins in Very Fine Condition
