Constantine the Great



Denomination:  AS Roman Bronze                              

Date:  Circa 306-337 AD


Description:  

At the time Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus was proclaimed Ceasar, there were five claimants to the throne.  He secured his authority by defeating the competition, and strengthening Roman borders as well as internal administration.  

Constantine’s subsequent efforts were focused in the west, with the idea of “One empire, one God.”  He reportedly had a vision one day in which a cross appeared in the sun, confirming to him that he should carry this image along with the message of Christ to protect his troops through battle.  By the Edict of Milan, he recognized Christianity, and also had the army paint the cross on their shields. In 312 Constantine and his men defeated Maxentius at Milvia.  He also chose Byzantium as the new capital of the Eastern Roman Empire and named it Constantinople.
