This interesting piece was part of a series of medallions struck to commemorate the Roman victories against Dacian tribes in the mid 330s. The campaign was led by the oldest Caesar, Constantine II, but his younger brothers Constantius II and Constans were also present, hence the reverse plural TRIVMVS CAESARVM.
