Constans, AE 3, FEL TEMP REPARATIO, Galley
A dangerous fake reported on CFDL by Warren Esty.  He noted that the mint is Rome, but the style and interpretation of details is not that of Rome (some details would be wrong for any mint).  The bust type and particularly the cuirass are not correct.  The rudder is wrong and may not be like any Roman rudder.  The Victory has details not found on genuine coins.  The nose, lettering, oars and phoenix are wrong.  

Admin note: Since this coin was posted other very similar examples have been authenticated by reputable dealers and experts. It seems likely this coin is genuine, however, it will remain here until additional information clarifies authenticity.
