The coinage of the sons of Constantine the Great continues with little significant change, the monetary system established by their father, and is just as interesting. This volume covers the issues of Constantine II, 337-340; Constans, 337-350; Constantius II, 337-361; and of Magnentius,350-353; Decentius; Vetranio 350; Julian, 360-363; and Jovian 363-4.
Known as RIC this is the standard reference used worldwide.
The object of this work is to present for the student, or collector the coinage of imperial Rome classified by mints and date. Thus being very different from the alphabetical order of reverse legend favoured by Cohen, which the authors realised had to change if a greater understanding of roman coins was to be achieved. To this end each volume has a series of indexes, types, legends, etc., so as to make coins easy to find.
A general introduction at the beginning of each volume deals with the mints, the money system, types, how the reigns are arranged.
