ref. RIC VII, Constantinopolis 38
Rare (R3); good VF, nearly black patina, small patina damage on portrait
Note: RIC misdescribes the branchs both as palm-branchs

The most possible of various interpretations:
Greek DAPHNE = laurel, so 'The Constantinian laurel' as a symbol of victory. The victory in question is most likely to be that of Chrysopolis, where Constantine had defeated Licinius in AD 324.

rxtremely rare, F+, black patina, obv. a bit excentric

A very unusual coin. The depiction of Kybele (mural crown, extended r. hand), of the lion (shape, head) and the size ratio of Kybele to the lion speak strongly for an unofficial imitation.
