Camp Gates

Although traditionally called camp gates, the type may not actually depict the gates to a Roman camp. Most probably depict watch towers, fortresses, or city gates. Camp gates are a very popular collecting theme. Popular varieties include those with visible open or closed doors, unusual turrets or towers, windows, decorated bricks, those with an unusually large or small number of brick rows, and of course those issued by rarer emperors.

In 330, the Patriarch of Antioch, Eustathius, was banished to Trajanopolis, Thrace. After Eustathius reproached Eusebius for deviating from the Nicene faith. Eustathius was in turn accused, condemned, and deposed for anti-trinitarian Sabellianism. The people of Antioch rebelled against this action.
