Just noticed this thread
and a what a fantastic paper on this subject. Well thought out and documented. I've been following Dr. Ramskold collecting for over a decade now and have read two other of his
papers on this area
. Can not wait for the completion of his
reference. Judging from these it will be a groundbreaking work
. I found it fascinating that the evidence suggests the gold issues at this time were from the imperial traveling mint
and given mainly as donatives perhaps by the Emperor himself or a high ranking official. Also, by a rare Rome
issue of Crispus
we can accurately pinpoint the month of his
execution. I won't spoil the paper by telling you in my comment.
Thank you Dr. Ramskold for making this available to us collectors and an equal thanks to Ben for posting it here for us to read.
If you ever come across across an unlisted or very rare Rome
issue of Constantine
family, contact Lars Ramskold, especially before his
book is published.
