This Bronze Nummus of Constantine, struck at the London Mint, measures approximately 22 mm in diameter.

Imagery of the Emperor

The obverse features the laureate, cuirassed, right-facing portrait of Emperor Constantine, encircled by the inscription "CONSTANTINVS P F AVG," which translates into "Emperor Constantine, pious and successful."
