Ambianum (Amiens, France)

The short-lived mint at Amiens was opened during the revolt of Magnentius in 350 A.D. Some ancient sources state that Magnentius' father was a Briton and his mother a Frank and Ambianum is believe to have been Magnentius' birthplace. The mint at Ambianum struck for Magnentius and his brother Decentius. It remained open briefly after Magnentius was defeated, striking for Constantius II and Constantius Gallus. Dates of operation: 350 - 353 A.D. Mintmarks: AMB, AMBI.

Magnentius, 18 January 350 - 10 August 353 A.D.

I am the alpha and the omega" is an appellation of Jesus in the Book of Revelation (verses 1:8, 21:6, and 22:13). Alpha (A) and omega (w/?) are respectively the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. The first and last letters of the Greek alphabet were used because the Book of Revelation was originally written in Greek. This reverse was meant to incite the Orthodox Christians of the West against the Arian Constantius II, who intended to reclaim the western provinces.
