21mm, 4.54g

The second son of Constantine the Great, Constantius ruled the Asian provinces and Egypt from 337AD, with his brothers Constantine II and Constans ruling the central and western empire. His brothers fought over the western Empire, Constantine II was killed as a result. Constans ruled in the west until he was overthrown and asassinated by Magnentius in 350AD. Constantius II did not accept Magnentius as emperor and after two significant battles Magnentius was defeated and committed suicide, leaving Constantius II as the sole ruler of the empire.

A lovely sharp example in fine style.
