LRB's with "Victor" in the legend
« on: August 09, 2012, 05:23:25 PM »
I have never actively collected coins with my name on them...but there are some interesting LRB's that have "Victor" or "Vic" somewhere in the obverse or reverse legend, so I will post some here as I get them. The first that comes to my mind is Flavius Victor- son of Magnus Maximus.

A.D. 383-388
DN FL VICTOR PF AVG, pearl diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right

Constantine II was defeated and killed by his brother Constans in A.D. 340. This coin type (the reverse of which translates as “Victory of the Augusti”) was issued in the name of Constans and Constantius II to commemorate the victory and proclaim their cooperation.

VICTORIA AVGG- Emperor standing facing, head left, holding Victory on globe & standard.

The reverse legend of AVGG means two Augusti, but this type was struck before Maximus raised his son Victor to Augustus and no coins of this reverse are known in his name. This means that the two Augusti must be Maximus and Theodosius I. Valentinian II must have been purposely ignored by Maximus.
