The obverse of this fascinating commemorative coin shows the bust of Roma facing left wearing a helmet and imperial mantle. On the reverse is the she-wolf of Rome suckling the twins Romulus and Remus. The myth basically narrates the founding of Roman institutions. The two' boys, upon reaching manhood, re-instated the deposed king Numitor of Alba Longa, and established a settlement on the. Palatine. Commemorative coins were issued to mark special occasions, in this case Constantine's visit to Rome, probably around 326 A.D. Though the emperor had already transferred the capitol of the empire to Byzantium, (henceforth known as Constantinople), Rome was the most important city in the West and still retained the spirit of its glorious past. - (FJ.6523)
