(Talk about a lady... look at those whiskers!!! Kidding, a hilarious attempt at lighting, we hope) Pop quiz! What do Pamela Voorhees, Edith Myers and Helena Augusta all have in common? They were all woman whom gave birth to evil men and later were turned into saints: (Hey, it's like a week until Halloween) Flavia Julia Helena was a Greek born of humble means, we're not even sure where she was born and before hooking up with Constantius Chlorox wipesus she is referred to as either a "stable-maid"/"inn-keeper" and it's even been hypothesized that she was a prostitute (cool your jets fellas, salacious gossip about rich and famous people has been going on since, well, rich and famous people have been). The unknowns aside, once she became a consort/concubine of Constantius Chlorus it was life in the fast lanes as she would give birth to Constantine I and influence him enough to become a certified saint. There's even a story of her "finding the true cross" She would outlive her John, Constantius, by almost a quarter century. Dying in 330 CE with Constantine by her side. (Here she sits in her favorite rocking chair. Well, ok. It didn't rock. But it WAS made of stone. And yes, it was cold the day she posed for this memorial statue) Helena Augusta, AD 324-328/30. Æ Follis Heraclea mint, 2nd officina. Struck AD 329-330. Diademed and mantled bust right, wearing necklace / Securitas standing left, holding branch; SMHB·. RIC VII 85. This one always made me think that she looked like a turtle Helena AE Follis (Constantinople 337-341, posthumous issue, - Diademed and draped bust right / Pax standing left, holding branch and scepter (RIC 33 / C. 4) So please, post those coins of a Helena gal or whatever "saintly" things come to mind!
