Constantine the Great. A.D. 330-354. Follis She-wolf and twins Extremely Fine
After a period of time out of stock we have just managed to source more of these charming commemorative issues struck by Constantine the Great. The type offered here was made to reaffirm Rome as the centre of the empire in A.D. 330. They are made from bronze and show the Goddess of the city, ‘Roma’, in a helmet and war gear on the obverse. The reverse shows the She-Wolf (Lupa Romana) suckling the babies Romulus and Remus. This is to symbolise the origin story of the founding of Rome. At the time bronze coins would circulate so heavily that it is very hard to find them in a good grade but we have managed to get just 25 more in Extremely Fine and they are still very affordable at just £79.50.
