Lot of 5 Choice gVF+ Bronze Coins - Roman Emperor Licinius I and his son Licinius II, 308 - 324 A.D.
Licinius I was a comrade of emperor Galerius in the Tetrarchic period. Following the abdication of Diocletian and Maximianus, Licinius was raised to the rank of Augustus despite never having held the position of Caesar. After Maximinus II invaded his territories, Licinius marched against him and defeated him soundly. Over the next few years, relations between Licinius and Constantine I deteriorated. Armed conflict broke out several times and Licinius was defeated. Only through the intervention of Licinius' wife, Constantine's sister, was his life spared. However, shortly after he was executed for additional political machinations against Constantine. Licinius Junior, son of Licinius I, was made Caesar while still a small child. He was deposed after his father's defeat and executed in 326 A.D.
