    My name is Victor Clark and I have been collecting ancient coins since I got out of the Navy in 1995. My focus is mainly on Late Roman Bronzes (LRB's), especially those of Constantine the Great, but I enjoy all the fourth and fifth century bronzes. My interest in ancient numismatics gave me motivation to get my master's in History and I wrote my thesis--- "Constantine the Great: The Coins Speak" on bronze coinage of Constantine and stressed the multidisciplinary aspects of numismatics and tried to demonstrate how coins can be used as another primary source.

    Hi Victor I'm a metal detectorist from the UK I recently found a Constantine bronze folis coin that has been holed above his back there are so many speculation on why they holed coins in different places but the coin I found was most probably holed by the saxons so it was made to look as if the roman emperor was bowing to the saxon . Would love to know you theory kn holed roman coins . Kind regards Pete.

    Roman coins were holed for many reasons; including use as jewelry. Often they were holed to string together so they would not get lost. I have seen holed coins found on a pin; which was then attached inside a cloak for safe keeping.
