Coins are from my personal collection. Description is from the 2x2 holder that came with the coin when I originally purchased them. I am not an ancient coin expert, so I do not know how accurate their descriptions are. Please look at the photos and judge for yourself.
Constantine I rose to become one of Rome`s greatest emperors. Believing that a holy vision he saw before the Battle of Milvian Bridge was responsible for his victory, Constantine made Christianity the official state religion and eventually converted to it himself. Toward the end of his life, Constantine rebuilt Byzantium and gave it the name Constantinople, making it the capital of the empire.
