    The reverse appears to be two people sharing drinks over an altar. Can't say I've seen this one.

    The obverse has a really goofy looking head, with a heavily sloped forehead and a hooked nose. Appears to be wearing a crested helmet.

    Looks pretty close. I have to say that this is probably the ugliest portrait of Constantine I've ever seen.

    Barbarous version of this perhaps .. with a right facing portrait?

    VICT• LAETAE PRINC PERP -- two Victories stg., facing one another, together holding shield inscribed VOT PR on altar inscribed with I

    **but I would love if it actually was two guys having a pint**

    Barbarous two victories reverse, I think. They can be pretty crude in their artistry. Here's one in my collection.

    Thanks! I guess this might be barbarous. I don't really see a hint of a shield, just a couple "pints" :)

    Very nice barbarous Victories!
    Here are some Victories, just as barbarous, doing different things.

    The left Victory rides a hobby horse, while the right one is singing loudly.
