Theodosius II - solidus of Constantinople
D.N. THEODOSIVS P.F. AVG. , helmeted bust facing holding spear and shield
IMP. XXXXII COS. XVII P.P. , Constantinople* seated left holding cross on globe, foot on prow ; exergue : CONOB

*The description in Sear says it is Roma. But Roma is never depicted with a foot resting on a prow. Constantinople does, and it must be a commemoration of the naval battle of Chrysopolis, not far from there, won by Constantine the Great against his rival Licinius.
