Coin ID
« on: December 29, 2015, 05:27:43 AM »
Hi again! I have a couple more coins that I need to identify, but they are out of my scope (I do not have access to RIC).
Who is the ruler they depict? Is there a RIC ID for them? The first one is shown here:

Thank you a lot!

This is a posthumous issue of Constantine I. The obverse is DV CONSTANTI-NVS PT AVGG. For a RIC number you have to be able to read the exergue. From the picture I am not able to clearly make it out, but it looks like you should probably be able to see it in hand. I think that I can make out SMHA (Heraclea) but I am not sure.

Thank you Victor for your answers!

With respect to the Constantine I coin, from what I have read, the type in the reverse is Constantine on a quadriga and the hand of God reaching down to him, is it correct?

Thank you again!

Yes, that is right.
