Constans in the years 650-54, faced many rebellions and revolts, especially in North Africa. In 654, his son Constantine IV becomes august. From 659, Heraclius and Tiberius are associated with power, and on the coins, they are the reverse. It was Constantine, the eldest son of Constans is always shown on the right side of his father.
