** 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.
Licinius - Otherwise known as Flavius Galerius Valerius Licinianus Licinius (rolls right off the tongue), he accompanied Emperor Galerius on a Persian Expedition in 297. He was later given command over what was formerly the Western Half of the Roman Empire.
Jupiter (Back): Depicts Jupiter (also Jove - god of the sky and thunder and king of the Roman pantheon; i.e. the Roman Zeus) surrounded by IOVI CONSERVATORI - to Jupiter the protector. Jupiter stands between eagle and spear, holding victory on a globe in his right hand and a scepter in his left.
