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.

Click for a larger photo
After the Roman troops in Britain, proclaimed general Magnus Maximus emperor, he invaded Gaul and drove Gratian before him until the latter was overrun and assassinated. After negotiations, Theodosius I recognized Magnus Maximus and his son, Flavius Victor, as emperors in Britannia and Gaul. Gratian's brother Valentinian II retained Italy, Pannonia, Hispania, and Africa. In 386 A.D., driven by reckless greed, Magnus Maximus invaded Italy, driving out Valentinian II, who fled to Theodosius I.
