Awesome natural patina, beautiful contrast. Rather rare variety coin. Delmatius AE Follis. FL DALMATIVS NOB CAES, laureate & cuirassed bust right / GLORIA EXERCITVS, two soldiers, with sheilds & spears, standing facing standard between them. Awesome natural patina, beautiful contrast. 1.6g 15mm Flavius Delmatius (or Dalmatius) was son of another Flavius Delmatius, censor, and nephew of Constantine I. Delmatius and his brother Hannibalianus were educated at Tolosa (Toulouse) by rhetor Exuperius. On 19 September 335, he was raised to the rank of Caesar, with the control of Thracia, Achaea and Macedonia. Dalmatius died in late summer 337, killed by his own soldiers. It is possible that his death was related to the purge that hit the imperial family at the death of Constantine, and organized by Constantius II with the aim of removing any possible claimant to the throne.
