Constantius II, Solidus

Struck for the vicennalia (20th anniversary of succession) of Constantius II, a gold crown surrounds the design on both sides. On the reverse, Victory holds a shield that reads VOT/ XX/ MVLT/ XXX – Votis vicennalibus multis tricennalibus, which effectively reads “best wishes for your twentieth anniversary and many more for your thirtieth to come”. SMAQ in the exergue indicates the mint of Aquileia.
