At the time his father, Constantius l, was appointed Caesar in 293 A.D. Constantine was a tribune at the court of the. Emperor Diocletian. Upon Constantius' death in Britain his son was proclaimed Augustus by the troops (306 A.D.); but it was not until 312 A.D. that Constantine finally defeated his rivals to become sole emperor. Highly gifted in military and political matters, he also took an active interest in religion, elevating Christianity as the state religion, restoring Church property, giving privileges to the clergy and instigating a massive church building program. His transferring the capital of the empire from Rome to Byzantium bas also had a lasting effect. On this fine coin he is shown facing right wearing a diadem. On the reverse is a laurel wreath in which is the legend VOT XX, ie. vota pro solute imperatoris, (for the health or safety of the emperor during his twentieth year of rule.) - (FJ.6528)
