Commentary


Poids léger. Rubans de type 3. Ce type ne peut pas avoir été frappé en 313-315 comme le prétend P. M. Bruun dans le RIC VII, mais doit appartenir aux émissions difficilement classées de 313 avec une préférence pour une taille au 1/84 L. et un grènetis de 22 mm qui correspond mieux à cette période.

Historical background


LICINIUS I

(11/11/308-09/324)

Licinius I was proclaimed august directly following the conference of Carnuntum, on November 11, 308. In 313, after the rescript of Milan, he married Constantine's half-sister, Constantia. In 316 a first war took place between Licinius and Constantine. It ends with the death of Valens and the signing of a peace between the two augusts. On April 1, 317, three Caesars were created: Crispus, Constantine II and Licinius II. A second war broke out between Constantine and Licinius in 321. It ended with the decisive defeat of Chrysopolis in 324 and the deposition of Licinius, exiled to Thessalonica before being executed the following year..
