A Fausta Coin Reverse: Mother with Children

Presented By Bob Stumm

A coin issued in the name of Fausta (the wife of Constantine the Great) depicts a female figure on the reverse holding two children. At first glance this appears to be a typical family scene (mother with children), but is there more to this story than meets the eye? Come and hear Bob as he discusses ways history and numismatic scholarship can help us understand the context of this issue.
