Description

4th century Roman bronze coin of the Constantine Dynasty. Constantine I, the Great, and his 3 sons converted the Roman Empire to Christianity, established the Papacy, the Eastern Christian Church in Constantinople, and convened the First Council of Nicaea. The first Roman Emperor to Embrace Christianity were Flavius Valerius Constantinus – Constantine I, (the great) & his sons Constantine II, Constas I, Constantius II: The Constantine Dynasty.

For centuries, Roman Emperors persecuted and murdered followers of Christianity. In the years following his rise to power in 312 AD, Constantine and his sons established Christianity as the state religion of Rome. While advancing Christianity’s influence, other religious beliefs were permitted in Constantine’s Rome.

It has been said by some historians that Constantine was among the most influential figures in the advancement of Christianity, second only to Jesus. Constantine is credited with establishing Constantinople-the eastern empire that was to eventually become Byzantium. Among his most significant achievements was the convening of the First Council of Nicaea in 325 AD, where he assembled for the first time the world’s Bishops, with the intent to define unity of beliefs for the whole of Christendom.

The Coinage of Constantine:

This coin is a genuine ancient Roman bronze coin minted in the

4 th century AD during the reign of the Constantine dynasty.

It is a genuine antiquity. The decline of the Roman Empire’s

fortunes during the 3 rd century was reflected in the gradual

elimination of the silver content of circulating coins, resulting

in the predominance of bronze types. This coin is Bronze with

4% Silver. The size, weight and the names of bronze coins

changed frequently during the period leading up to and also

during the reign of the Constantine Dynasty. Several Emperors

attempted monetary reforms but failed to stem the decline of the monetary system.

At least 15 different Roman coin denominations are know.
