The coin is exquisite in execution but makes Constantine look like he came from Mars!

Yep! I bought it for the portrait - it's got to be the goofiest Constantine!

If you posted it as the best goofy looks of an emperor ever it certainly deserves 5 points -

That's how Constantine looks on these ones. I've got a few, including from Cyzicus too, and he's a Martian there too; something about the VOT XX issues
