Camp Gates

Although traditionally called camp gates, the type may not actually depict the gates to a Roman camp. Most probably depict watch towers, fortresses, or city gates. Camp gates are a very popular collecting theme. Popular varieties include those with visible open or closed doors, unusual turrets or towers, windows, decorated bricks, those with an unusually large or small number of brick rows, and of course those issued by rarer emperors.

Constantine the Great, Early 307 - 22 May 337 A.D.

Click for a larger photo
On July 4, 325, in Nicea, a little town near the Bosporus Straits, Constantine the Great entered the hall in his imperial, jewel-encrusted, multicolored brocades, but this time without his usual train of soldiers. In the hall about three hundred Christian bishops and deacons were gathered around the Gospels laying open on a table. Constantine spoke briefly. He told them to come to agreement on the crucial questions dividing them. "Division in the church," he said, "is worse than war." Nicea began a new era for Christianity. Some of these churchmen carried scars of the imperial lash. One pastor from Egypt was missing an eye; another was crippled in both hands as a result of red-hot irons. The persecuted had become the respected advisers of the emperor. The once-despised church was on its way to becoming the state religion.

Constantine the Great, Early 307 - 22 May 337 A.D.

Cyzicus was one of the great cities of the ancient world. According to tradition, it was founded by Pelasgians from Thessaly and later received many colonies from Miletus. Like the other Greek cities in Asia, it fell under the rule of the Persia Empire until Alexander the Great captured it in 334 B.C. In 74 B.C. the city, allied with Rome, withstood a siege by 300,000 men led by King Mithridates VI of Pontus. Rome rewarded this loyalty with territory and with municipal independence which lasted until the reign of Tiberius. When it was incorporated into the Empire, Cyzicus was made the capital of Mysia, and afterward of Hellespontus. Dates of operation: The Cyzicus mint was opened by Gallienus (253 - 268 A.D.) and continued to strike coins well into the Byzantine era. Mintmarks: K, KVZ, SMK.
