    I am pretty sure almost everyrone has a Constantine II camp gate.
    If you do post it up.

    Here is one I just won from Antioch.

    I've shown this before, but I'll play. The issues from Trier are special insofar as only this min showed the emperor wearing a fur-lined coat. On my coin, the fur lining is quite clear – look at Constantine's left shoulder:

    Constantine II Iunior, Roman Empire, AE3, 326AD, Trier. Obv: CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB C, bust of Constantine II, laureate, draped, cuirassed, l. Rev: PROVIDENTIAE CAESS, camp gate with two turrets, star above; in exergue, STR crescent. 19mm, 3.01g. Ref: RIC VII Treveri 479.
