Arelatum or Constantina (Arles, France)

In 328 Arelatum was renamed Constantina in honor of Constantine II. After Constantine II was killed in 340, the name reverted to Arelate, only to be changed again in 354 to Constantina by Constantius II. It retained that name, although the mintmark 'AR' appeared on some of its coins even in the fifth century. Dates of operation: 313 - 475 A.D. Mintmarks: A, AR, ARL, CON, CONST, KON, KONSTAN.

Flavius Victor, c. 387 - 28 July 388 A.D.

"ARELATE (Arles, France - 43°41'N, 4°38'E), founded in or before the sixth century BC by colonists of Greek descent from Massalia (Marseille, France), was on the Rhone about 15 miles from the sea. After 104 BC when canals to the sea were cut around the silt-laden Rhone delta, it grew rapidly, with its fastest growth under Augustus as upstream Lugdunum grew. It became the capital of Narbonensis Secunda in the late third century, and an imperial mint opened in 313 operated until the city finally fell to the Visigoths in 476. In 328 its name was changed to 'Constantina', though 'Arelate' remained in use." - Moneta Historical Research by Tom Schroer

Constans' cruelty, misrule and homosexuality made himself extremely unpopular. On 18 January 350, the army in Gaul proclaimed Magnentius emperor and Constans was forced to flee to Spain where he was assassinated. Magnentius ruled the Western Roman Empire and was far more tolerant towards Pagans.
