Maxentius was the son of Maximian Herculis and Emperor of Rome between 306 and 312 A.D. when he was defeated by Constantine at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge. Before the battle Constantine purportedly saw an image of the Chi-Rho in the heavens, so as the story goes he had his soldiers paint the symbol on their shields, confident that God would lead them to victory. This is a new addition to my collection and my first Maxentius won at auction last evening. Maxentius, 306-312 A.D. Type: AE Follis, Rome mint (probably) 308-310 A.D.
