Constantius II was one of four sons of Constantine I (“The Great”). After their illustrious father’s death, the three surviving sons attempted to rule the Empire in parcels – Constantius II in the east, with his brothers Constans and Constantine II in the center and west. These amicable shares did not last, and eventually Constantius II remained the last son standing. This coin features two Victories holding a banner between them that reads, “VOT(is) XX MVLT(is) XXX,” meaning “For twenty years, wishing for thirty.” The legend of the reverse celebrating “Two Lords” refers to Constantius II and his brother Constans, as Constantine II had already died as a result of contention with Constans by the time of its minting. Constantius II is remembered mostly for surviving an era of unrest with mixed success. Other than the power struggle between his brothers, difficulties arose both within and outside the Empire. A long conflict with Persia came to a precarious standstill that was more luck than victory (though he claimed it as such). Christianity was still in the combative growing pains of establishing orthodoxy. Constantius II dealt with these internal issues of Arian and Nicene Christian conflict by persecuting the Arians (though he is now viewed as holding moderate religious beliefs, and merely making political moves).
