ROMAN COINS OF CONSTANTINE THE GREAT
   Constantine I is traditionally acclaimed as the "first Christian emperor" of Rome, but this is probably not the actual case.  There is the well propagated legend of the cross in the sky before the battle, and the unconfirmed tale of his deathbed baptism.  Christian and pagan references are found on his coins.
