CONSTANTINIANA DAFNE

    The mint at Constantinople opened in 326 with only two officina. The Dafne issue began as early as 327, and was struck at seven officina. These coins are the denomination of follis (plural-folles), sometimes they are silvered. These coins were struck without interruption, and were the only reverse, struck for over two years only in the name of Constantine, until the restructuring in 330. The coins on this page are attributed according to RIC, except I only recognize three bust types and I have revised the dates. For more information about these coins, including a revised chronology please look at my page on Dafne coinage. I collect these coins by RIC number and officina. RIC describes the reverse of the Dafne coinage as Victory holding a palm branch in each hand; but Victory is actually only holding a palm branch in her left. In her right hand she is holding a laurel branch.
