Roman lead imperial seal of Constantine II Caesar
Roman imperial lead seal of Constantine II Caesar AD 317-337
CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB.C; laureate bust right
Victory advancing left, holding palm branch and wreath
13mm; 3.08g; very fine; Found Zuid-Limburg, Heerlen, near the German border

Apparently unpublished, but cf. Leukel 74 for a seal of Constantine II with a draped bust and Victory advancing right. Leukel publishes several seals of this period produced with a boulloterion, and Oikonomides in SBS I (1987) publishes an actual boulloterion of Constans Caesar, contemporary with this seal.

Although he was only a child at the time, Constantine II became the formal commander of Gaul upon the death of his half-brother Crispus in AD 320. Present-day Netherlands was part of his domain and so it is no coincidence that a seal of his would be found here.
