The same legend and types occur on the Byzantine series down to the time of Constantine V (AD 751-775).

- Gordian III in military dress seated to left on a curule chair, holding a spear and crowned by Victory, standing, who holds a palm; before him a soldier standing holding a spear, and a figure standing facing; at the feet of the soldier a captive kneeling; a standard above, a military standard and a legionary eagle. Obv: GORDIANVS PIVS FELIX AVG, lareate bust of Gordian III to right, with paludamentum and cuirass, or with cuirass on which aegis; bronze medallion.

- Round tetrastyle temple; within the tympanum is the inscription NEIKH, and on the frieze OPOFPROC.

Brass medallion of Gordian III with various types of obverse. Also on AE 2. These coins and that with FEOS OPLOFOROS [VICTORIA AVGVSTI] are the only examples in the Roman coinage of a mixed inscription of Greek and Latin. They are also the onlt examples of the titles of Victoria armigera and Mars armiger. Froehner does not believe that a Greek inscription can be suitable for a Roman temple, and considers that the temple on the coin must have been erected either on a field of battle or in some city of Mesopotamia. Another reverse with MART VICTOR, sacrifice before a round temple, on which FEOT OPLOFOROT is given by Eckhel from Vaillant, but Cohen states that he has never met with it.

- Victory walking to left, holding wreath and palm. Obv: IMP M F R IOTAPIANVS AVG or IMP C M F RV IOTAPIANVS AVG, radiate bust of Iotapian to right with cuirass; silver. Iotapianus was a tyrant in Syria under Philip I, AD 249.

These pieces are supposed to be issued under Constantine the Great ans his sons.
