    Based on the observation of another example minted with the same dies and with a visible exergue on reverse, the Antioch's third officina provenance of this coin is now certain. Thanks to Myriam at Nummus Bible II forum for her perspicacity and for providing me with the information

    All very nice coins Cucumber great detail, is Victory type coins your main collecting theme as you seem to have a lot of good coins?

    A bit weird that the coins minted under Theodosius actually have Victory on them giving his edict of banning the Pagans. He banned them immediately right after he became emperor so it is not like these coins with pagan motif were minted before his edict.

    Two Antioch minted coins of Theodosius’ sons, Honorius and Arcadius:

    Here's a favorite type of mine, with a rare anepigraphic "eyes to heaven" obverse.



    Constantine I

    circa A.D. 328

    19mm 3.2gm

    Obv. Anepigraphic: head with rosette diademed, looking up to heavens

    Rev. CONSTANTINIANA DAFNE; Victory seated l. on cippus, palm branch in left hand and laurel branch in right hand, looking r.; trophy at front, at the foot is a kneeling captive with head turned being spurned by Victory; in left field Γ.

    In exergue CONS

    I wonder if the prevailing thought was a crossover showing angels rather than Victory?

    I talk briefly about how Victory transitioned into a Christian angel on my DAFNE page; but I am far from the first to talk about it.

    Here's a quote from Harold Mattingly

    "This is perhaps the only case in which the transition from pagan goddess to Christian angel is perfectly clear."

    Thanks for the kind coment @Ancient Aussie.
    No, Victory isn't at all a main collecting theme. To tell the truth, I didn't even know how many I had, just browsed my gallery at Forvm for the necessity of this post. I have a few more in the late empire, but as @Alegandron, wouldn't want to be much of a bore
