Ancient Rome Constantine I Follis with Jupiter 306AD to 337AD

That's Roman emperor Constantine I (the great) Flavius Valerius Constantinus Auguste (IMP FL VAL CONSTANTINVS AVG) on the front of this billon follis (about 5 grams), with Roman god Jupiter on the back, holding Victory.

The wonderful example in our picture comes from in Paris, where it sold for 195 euros (about $210 US dollars) during a 2008 auction. As always, CoinQuest is grateful to for use of their coin photo. It's a beauty!

The inscription on the Jupiter side is IOVI CONSERVATORI translates as Jupiter protects our emperors.
