I was tempted to title this "Cibum ad Sol" as this first series of coins feature Sol and has been a collection theme of mine. I've recently buttressed my Constantine collection with a handful, no quite a few, more coins. Catechuman means one who practices or follows the beliefs of Christianity without being baptized which was the case for Constantine the Great. While not cheap, this area of collecting allows one to go a little further and reach into some fine style coins relatively reasonably. Granted we are seeing a bit of a deterioration in quality here vs say Pax Romana but these coins carry an artistic beauty in their own right even if meant for mass consumption. The first two are from AMCC, really happy with those additions to my Constantine - Food for the Sol collection. Fine style portrait on this first coin, with a really nice strike. Constantine I 307-337 A.D. follis RIC VII Treveri 101 Trier laureate, draped, & cuirassed bust right IMP CONSTANTINVS AVG SOLI INVIC-TO COMITI Sol, radiate, chlamys draped over left shoulder, standing left, raising right hand and holding globe in left hand, T/F//BTR From the Caesar_Augustus collection I had not had any fancy mintmarks from Constantine or many from Roma at all so was happy to add this one as well and do like the military dress portrait. I know there is another thread on mint or control marks but I find it interesting they start to appear more frequently in this time period. Constantine I 307-337 A.D. follis RIC VII Rome laureate & cuirassed bust right IMP CONSTANTINVS P F AVG SOLI INV-I-CTO COMITI SOLI INV-I-CTO COMITI Sol, radiate, chlamys draped over left shoulder, standing left, raising right hand and holding globe in left hand; R/F//R✱P From the Caesar_Augustus collection When you know what you like, you end up having more than one of them even if they aren't die matches, but the first one looks just like fellow Brooklynite Jimmy Fallon... Constantine I 307-337 A.D. follis RIC VI 869 Sol 310-313 Treveri Laureate and cuirassed bust right Sol standing left, raising hand and holding globe; T|F//PTR Constantine I 307-337 A.D. follis RIC VI 869310-313 Treveri Laureate and cuirassed bust right Sol standing left, raising hand and holding globe; T|F//PTR 1st officina PTR Patina, strike and unique marks, what's not to like: Constantine I 307–337 A.D. follis RIC 164 Arles laureate, draped and cuirassed bust of Constantine I right IMP CONSTANTINVS P F AVG SOLI INVICTO COMITI Sol standing left, chlamys across shoulders, raising right hand and holding globe; P star over crescent A in exergue. My interest started with this issue from Lugdunum claimed to have been found with the Bourton-on-Woods hoard: Let's see some Constantine, Sol or both!
