Constantinius II Coin - Siscia, Italy Mint (ESIS) - Back Depicts Two Winged Victories facing each other, holding wreaths
** PLEASE NOTE: This is the exact coin you will receive! As all of these ancient coins were made by hand (and have aged about 1700 years), they all have unique shapes and printings; and are therefore one of a kind. I have included a link to the rest of our ancient coin necklaces below!
Constantinius II - Second son of Constantine the Great; and was very active in the affairs of the Church. He re-joined the territories of the Roman empire under one ruler. Remembered as being a Christian heretic for imposing his will upon the Church.
Winged Victory (Victoria)(Back): Depicts winged two Victories (goddess of victory) standing facing each other holding wreathes. Note these also look like they could be an ancient form of angels with their robes being different than the usual portrayal of Victory (also there's two of them and only one goddess). Winged Victory was a much more common coin design, and therefore the safer assumption when examining the coin.
*** NOTE: Necklace comes with a card of authenticity and the explanation of what the coin is.
