** 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!
Constantine II - He was (unsurprisingly) the son of Constantine I, and was named Caesar before he was a year old. The front depicts his bust. This coin shows military strength with two soldiers on the back and the words GLORIA EXERCITVS or "glory of the army" around the top. This image was often used in the Constantine era during periods of expansion, namely through France and "Alamannia" (parts of present-day Germany).
*** NOTE: Necklace comes with a card of authenticity and the explanation of what the coin is.
