These types were struck later, in general, than the two standards types and represent a further decline in the weight of the conage during the first half of the Fourth Century. In A. D. 348, they were replaced by some beautiful new types that were also quite a bit larger than the 15 mm or so of the two soldiers, one standard type. The new types introduced in 348 were in commemoration of the 1100th anniversary of the founding of Rome. Americans were not the first to strike commemorative coins, and these beauties actually circulated throughout the empire.
