Treveri, Gallia Belgica (Trier, Germany)

Colonia Augusta Treverorum was the capitol of Roman Belgica and served as the capital of the Gallic Empire under the emperors Tetricus I and II from 271 to 274. Dates of operation: 294 - 395, 408 - 413 and c. 430. Mintmarks: SMTR, TR, TRE, TROB, TRPS.

|Marius|, |Gallic| |Empire,| |Marius,| |May| |-| |August| |or| |September| |269| |A.D.||antoninianus|
A blacksmith by trade, Marius worked his way up through the ranks until he was an officer in the Gallic Empire army under Postumus. Upon Postumus' death, Marius seized power but his reign was very short, perhaps only two or three days. He was murdered by his own officers, possibly with a sword of his own manufacture.

Constantine the Great, Early 307 - 22 May 337 A.D.

|Constantine| |the| |Great|, |Constantine| |the| |Great,| |Early| |307| |-| |22| |May| |337| |A.D.||follis|
Although Ares was viewed by the Greeks primarily as destructive and destabilizing, worthy of contempt and revulsion, for the Romans, Mars was a father (pater) of the Roman people. He was the father of Romulus and Remus, the legendary founders of Rome. In early Rome, he was second in importance only to Jupiter, and the most prominent of the military gods in the religion of the Roman army. Most of his festivals were held in March, the month named for him (Latin Martius), and in October, which began and ended the season for military campaigning and farming.
RL96901. Billon follis, RIC VI Treveri 776, SRCV V 16008, Cohen VII 368, Hunter V -, aVF, green patina, light earthen deposits, scratches, light scrape on obverse, weight 5.801 g, maximum diameter 25.6 mm, die axis 180o, 1st officina, Treveri (Trier, Germany) mint, 307 - 308 A.D.; obverse IMP CONSTANTINVS P F AVG, laureate and cuirassed bust right, from front; reverse MARTI PATRI PROPVGNATORI (to Mars the Defending Father), Mars advancing right, nude but for crested helmet and chlamys over shoulders and flying behind, spear in right hand, shield in left hand, S left, A right, PTR in exergue; $110.00 (€101.20)
 


Constantine the Great, Early 307 - 22 May 337 A.D.

|Constantine| |the| |Great|, |Constantine| |the| |Great,| |Early| |307| |-| |22| |May| |337| |A.D.||argenteus|
RIC describes this coin as an AE Folles (or AE3), however, this series coincides with other series from other mints, where Constantine introduced a billon argenteus denomination. Both the AE3 module and AR argenteus will be listed under the same RIC number, even though this issue begins this reverse type and was actually minted in 310 - 313 and should have appeared in RIC VI with the other billon argentei issues of Licinius I and Maximinus II.

This example appears to have a higher silver content and is not grainy like many examples of this type.
RS53613. Billon argenteus, RIC VI -, RIC VII Trier 208a (R3), Cohen VII 643 (3 Fr.), gF, weight 3.469 g, maximum diameter 17.2 mm, die axis 180o, 1st officina, Treveri (Trier, Germany) mint, 310 - 313 A.D.; obverse IMP CONSTANTINVS AVG, helmeted, draped and cuirassed bust left, spear in right over shoulder, mappa in left; reverse VICTORIAE LAETAE PRINC PERP (Joyous victory to the eternal Prince), two Victories standing confronted, together holding between them a shield inscribed VOT P R in two lines, PTR in exergue; very rare; SOLD
