Struck on Constantine's return journey from Rome
Lot 2770
Constantine II, as Caesar, 316-337. Siliqua (Silver, 19 mm, 3.00 g, 12 h), Thessalonica, February 327. Plain-diademed head of Constantine II to right. Rev. CONSTANTINVS CAESAR / SMTS Three palm fronds; above, star. Ramskold in review (Numismatic Chronicle), fig. 11. RIC -. RSC -. Apparently unique. Struck from a slightly worn obverse die and with light scratches and the flan somewhat bent, otherwise, very fine.

From the collection of Dr. L. Ramskold, formed since 1969.

The hatched diadem shows that this coin was struck on Constantine's return journey from Rome. By this time, Crispus had been deposed of and there were two remaining Caesars, Constantine and Constantius. This coin therefore proves that the three palm fronds on the reverse do not represent the three Caesars. Their significance remains unknown.
