    I just bought this Constantine cause I just could not pass it up after seeing the hairdo! Some of the engravers went all out on their dies.

    Very nice! I have one from the post-reform series, but I wonder if it was the same engraver? constantine I gloria exercitvs antioch.jpg

    Antioch had some impressive portraits of Constantine:

    Most coins of Constantine don’t do much for me but that coin @bcuda is stellar!

  8. The monumental bust looks like he is wearing a wig...

    Wonderful @bcuda ! That is probably the most unique hairstyle I've ever seen on a coin of Constantine. The hair looks like overlapping flower petals.
