Ancient Rome Constantinopolis Folis with Victory 307AD to 337AD
Roman emperor Constantine I (the Great) founded the city of Constantinople, formerly Byzantium, now Istanbul, in north western Turkey and issued this coin to commemorate its founding. The front shows a personification of the city and the back shows the Roman goddess Victory.
