    I picked this one up right at $30 shipped. Was not really looking for one but the condition and price seemed ok to me.
    Post up your Constantine posthumous coins for us to see.

    Posthumous Constantine I AE-4
    This is a posthumous AE-4, struck in honor of Constantine the Great (307-337 AD) by his sons, Constantius II and Constans, after his death.
    The obverse legend translates as "The deified Constantine, father of the two emperors."
    The reverse abbreviation, VN MR, is from the Latin "Venerandae Memoriae" which translates as "In honor of venerated memory."
    (Diameter: 15 mm. Weight: 1.28 grams)
    OB: Veiled head of Constantine, right - DV CONSTANTINVS PT AVGG
    REV: Constantine standing right, veiled and togate - VN MR on either side
    This coin was struck at the Alexandria mint in 347-348 AD with the mint mark SMALΓ. It is attributed as RIC, Vol. VIII, #32.
