|Comment:||This is a very rare coin from Londinium. It was part of an issue struck by Constantine I for Licinius I in 316. In the same issue coins with this reverse were also struck with the bust of Constantine I. These coins were issued shortly after the first bloody civil war between the Constantine I and Licinius I had come to an end.|
