Claudius, 25 January 41 - 13 October 54 A.D.
Constantia is the personification of consistency. On Roman coinage, she is found only on coins struck under Claudius. A typical example of the fabricated propaganda on Roman coinage, consistency was a characteristic that Claudius lacked. His biographer Suctonius said of him, "In the faculties of reflection and discernment, his mind was remarkably variable and contrasted, he being sometimes circumspect and sagacious; at others inconsiderate and hasty, often frivolous and as though he were out of his wits." On the other hand, BMC notes, that Constantia personifies courage, endurance and resolution in civil life - the quality that enabled Claudius to bear the trials of his early years.
