Historical background




Constans was born in 320 and received the title of Caesar on December 25, 333. Made august after September 9, 337 with his two other brothers, Constantine II and Constantius II, he soon became angry with his elder brother, who died in April 340. After the death of his brother, Constans recovers the heritage of Constantine II and obtains the charge of the West. A maiorina is struck on the occasion of the 1100th anniversary of Rome in 348, an anniversary recalled by the reverse legend "the Return of Happy Times". Constans is assassinated at the beginning of the year 350.
