Well I am not laughing at you @gsimonel ! I have used deified many times without realizing it is a palindrome! And, BTW, a very nice coin you posted.

Great CI coin, @gsimonel !

RI Constantine I Folles 306-337 CE Captives VOTA Banner
If we could change 'Friday' to 'Myday' the days of the week would be a palindrome. SMTWTMS Enough people look forward to Friday that the proposed change should get popular support.
Constantine I, AD 307-337.
Roman Æ Centenionalis, 2.59 g, 18.4 mm.
Aquileia, AD 321.
Obv: CONSTAN-TINVS AVG, laureate head, right.
Rev: D N CONSTANTINI MAX AVG, laurel wreath around VOT XX; ·AQ · below.
Refs: RIC vii, p. 404, no. 85; RCV 16216; Cohen 123.
Note: the officina mark, which should follow the AQ of the Aquileia mintmark, is absent, likely due to a filled die.
Separate names with a comma.
