After Andronicus II did not select his popular grandson and namesake as heir, Andronicus III rose in revolt. Even after they agreed to reign jointly, grandfather and grandson were at war. In 1328 the grandson took the city by surprise and forced his grandfather to abdicate. Although at first he retained his titles and his home in the palace, in 1330 he was forced into a monastery. Old and blind, Andronicus II died on 13 February 1332.

It has been theorized that bronze imitatives of this time period were produced to fill a shortage of small change. The imitative radiates found in the non-Gallic Western part of the Empire are usually Claudius II Gothicus (RR-p.48), especially DIVO CLAVDIO issues. It is believed that these were struck in Italy, Spain and North Africa. -G Depeyrot, La monnaie romaine, 211 av JC 476 apres JC; R Reese, The Coinage of Roman Britain.

|Members| |Auction| |Listed|, |City| |of| |Constantinople| |Commemorative,| |331| |-| |334| |A.D.||reduced| |centenionalis|
On 11 May 330, Constantine I refounded Byzantium, renamed it Constantinopolis after himself, and moved the capital of the Roman Empire from Rome to his new city. The new capital was Christian, old gods and traditions were either replaced or assimilated into a framework of Christian symbolism. Constantine built the new Church of the Holy Apostles on the site of a temple to Aphrodite. Generations later there was the story that a divine vision led Constantine to this spot. The capital would often be compared to the 'old' Rome as Nova Roma Constantinopolitana, the "New Rome of Constantinople." Special commemorative coins were issued with types for both Rome and Constantinople to advertise the importance of the new capital.

This type is traditionally assigned to Antioch but McAlee identifies Laodicea as the most likely mint. McAlee notes, "After Septimius stripped Antioch of its privileges and conferred them on Laodicea-ad-Mare, some coins of Laodicea bear the legend 'Metropolis of the Four Provinces,' and others have a representation of four Tyches. The letters ∆ - E also regularly appear on the coins of Laodicea from the time of Elagabalus to that of Trebonianus Gallus." We attribute the type to Antioch, but clearly that is not certain.
