    No, Sorry (mostly to everyone else), but I needed all of this! ...In other words, Seth77, there was the same kind of dialectic (a little like a three-dimensional chess game) between (...dang; English, with all its pretensions, is a primitive language) 'ethnic' (subsuming something like, 'preexisting cultural') and, Sorry, (subsequent) 'cultural' influences, as has been happening from the beginning of anything that either anticipates, or otherwise resembles history.

    Hi all, and sorry to be late for talking about that coinage (Divus Constantinus):(

    @Valentinian : indeed, finding nice coins for the Lyons' Aeterna type is not common

    Here is one pretty good for example https://www.colleconline.com/fr/items/54664/monnaie-antique-romaine-ric-bastien-9

    Exact ref. is RIC. 32 - Ferrando II (= Ferrando 2010) 543

    However, for me, "desert patina" on Constantine consecration coins minted in Arelate makes them doubtful (my opinion)

    @Al.cofribas, Yeah, Minor Detail, There. Wish I could remember who, in which thread, talked about how prevalent fake 'desert patina' was. Sounds like somebody got a little too happy at the dealership....
