Been looking to add one of these types to my collection.
Found two ...Thought I'd share them...


Commemorative Series. 330-354 AD. AE Follis (2.03 gm, 16mm). Trier mint. Struck 330/1 AD.
Obv.: CONSTAN-TINOPOLIS, mantled bust of Constantinopolis left wearing laureate crested helmet and holding sceptre shoulder.
Rev.: Victory standing facing, head left, in prow of galley holding sceptre resting on shield; TRP dot ;. RIC 530 P; LRBC 59.


City Commemorative. 330-354 AD. AE Follis (2.40 gm, 17mm). Antioch mint. Struck 330-335 AD.
Obv.: VRBS ROMA, helmeted head of Roma left, wearing imperial mantle and ornamental necklace.
Rev.: she-wolf standing left, suckling Romulus and Remus, two stars above; SMANZ in exergue. RIC#91.

Here's a great site for those interested...Paul

That Urbs Roma is my fave, but both are great additions to your collection!

Gorgeous!
How did you wind up with two? Indecision, or bid on two hoping to come away with one, and got lucky?

Thanks for the comments guys!
IMO..I think these type coins are quite iconic with the heart/ Capital/ Centre of the Roman Empire being moved away from its Italian/Roman roots to its Eastern counterpart Constantinople!....
@tdziemia...I just saw both of these come up for sale pretty much at the same time and grapped them...They weren't expensive and found them both appealing...

Thanks @Jadey..
I'm not so keen on desert patinas but I'll leave this one as it does actually highlight the detail more.

Very nice additions, what took you so long? I think both are "must haves" in any collection of Romans.Historically significant and great designs. I have to get around to photographing them, but I do have them prominently displayed on my credenza.
