GLORIA EXERCITVS - Glory of the Army

The reverse legend on these coins dedicates them to "The glory of the Army." These types were struck in huge numbers by the Constantine Dynasty and most examples are inexpensive. The reverse depicts two soldiers standing facing flanking one or two standards in the center. Their heads are turned toward each other (confronted) and each holds a spear in their outer hand and rests their inner hand on a shield on the ground. Some more unusual examples have a symbol on the standard.
