Denomination: Follis Era: C. 308 CE Metal: AE Obverse: FL VAL CONSTANTINVS FIL AVG; Laureate head r. Reverse: GENIO F-IL AVGG; Genius standing l., holding patera and cornucopia; -/(O/Є)//ANT•. Mint: Antioch Weight: 6.79 gm. Reference: RIC 111 (Antioch) Provenance: Naville 57, April 26, 2020. Lot 653 Scarce FIL AVG issue, struck at Antioch by Maximinus II who was also demoted to Filius Augustorum at the Carnuntum conference. Both Maximinus and Constantine were unaccepting of this downgrade from either Caesar or Augustus and the mints under their respective control didn't claim this title for themselves. The eastern mints Antioch and Alexandria under control of Maximinus continued to use Nobilisimus Caesar on the coins for Maximinus, but coins for Constantine were were issued with the title FIL AVG. The Carnuntum conference was Galerius' show so mints under his jurisdiction struck for both Constantine and Maximinus as FIL AVG. Only at Antioch was the title adorned in the legends on both obverse and reverse. At other mints (Alexandria, Nicomedia, Thessalonica, Siscia) only the obverse legend is seen with FIL AVG, the reverse with either Genio Caesaris or Genio AVGG.
