Refers to coins struck after Constantine the Great's death, AD 337-340. Like these ones: http://www.ancientresource.com/lots...nus-dei.html

there is a good ancient reference from Eusebius about this coin--


"At the same time coins were struck portraying the Blessed One on the obverse in the form of one with head veiled, on the reverse like a charioteer on a quadriga, being taken up by a right hand stretched out to him from above." Life of Constantine IV 73
