Unique ID: FASAM-D16E27

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Copper alloy nummus of the House of Constantine - CONSTANTINOPOLIS / Victory of prow - probably dating to AD 337-40 (Reece Period 17). The mintmark is unclear, but appears to be R crescent [P-E] which is for Rome. Constantinopolis coins are struck for various Rome issues between 337 and 340, but is not recorded for the R crescent P issue (see RIC VIII, p. 251, nos. 47-9). A better specimen is required to confirm this type.
