CONST-A-NЧS P P A, diademed, helmeted and cuirassed bust of Constantine IV facing slightly right, in fine style, holding spear over right shoulder and shield on right arm / VICTORI-A AVΣЧ, cross potent on three steps, Є//CONOBA in exergue.

    From The Andre Constantine Dimitriadis Collection. Ex Spink (London, November 1987), lot 194. 

    Toward the end of the reign of Constantine IV, an exceptionally talented engraver began producing dies with a quality of portraiture not seen for two centuries. However talented an artist he may have been, however, his literacy was marginal, as coin legends remained badly garbled.

    This coin from the Dimitriadis Collection has been issued a photo-certificate by NGC. It may be sent in for encapsulation after the auction at the request of the buyer, free of charge. E-mail SamS@HA.com if you would like to utilize this option.
