    I just listed a commemorative coin of Constantine I on eBay when I realized that the word "deified" is a palindrome. What a great discovery! Especially consider that we're in Day #5 of palindrome week!

    Why is everyone laughing at me?

    I'm serious. Okay, here's the coin:

    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.

    HEY! I ask the question: why is the word “PALINDROME” not a palindrome itself??? Kinda defeats the purpose... :D

    Great CI coin, @gsimonel !

    Ok, he is not dead on my coin, (no commem / divus in my collection)

    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.

    Not deified, not rare, either.

    Note: the officina mark, which should follow the AQ of the Aquileia mintmark, is absent, likely due to a filled die.
