I can't read any of the legends due to photo (and the coin's damage) to confirm it is Constantine.. but here is a similar coin.. Late Roman Bronze (LRB) of Constantine .. with a VOT reverse.
Again.. not the same coin as yours but an example from that era.
Obv: CONSTANTINVS AVG, laureate head right.
Rev: D N CONSTANTINI MAX AVG, VOT XX within wreath
Mintmark: Epsilon SIS sunburst
RIC VII Siscia, 180

Welcome to the Ancients board!
I'm not sure which coin you are referring to. Do you mean you have a coin with an obverse legend of "CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB C" and you want to see a picture of someone else's coin with that legend? We can do that... but what is the reverse of your coin? That particular obverse legend was used by Constantine II and a quick look at Wildwinds shows 368 different types of coins for his legend ending in "IVN NOB C", and Wildwinds isn't even a complete listing of all types of his coins. You might want to start there and see if you can find a coin matching yours. Here's a link to that page: http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/ric/constantine_II/t.html
RIC VII 128 Constantine II Silvered AE3. 324 AD. CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB C, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust left / CAESARVM NOSTRORVM around VOT X within wreath. Mintmark TSBVI.
Again, I don't know about foreign coins, but mine looks like it's bronze and above it says "Silvered", does that mean that coin is silver? As I said before, the coin had been cleaned and all I think they did was get enough crud off of it to see it was a coin. I couldn't make out any detail when I first looked at it, so I tried cleaning it with ultra sonic with water and was surprised that I saw some bright copper color right away on the high parts of the coin. That turned out to be where they did some overly aggressive cleaning/ sanding or grinding, who knows. But after doing many times is when I uncovered enough detail to try to find out what it was and from when. I didn't see a way to attach the photos of the coin or I would, it's in hateful shape.
