To celebrate the establishment of the new capital, Constantinople, Constantine the Great issued a bronze coin to honor Rome, the old capital. The coin`s obverse legend reads URBS ROMA (city of Rome), while its reverse shows he she-wolf and twins which recalls Rome`s founding story. By A.D. 330 Rome was a city in decline, and perhaps this coin made the citizens of Rome feel better about their loss of prestige.
