VICTORIAE LAETAE PRINC PERP

The reverse legend on this type abbreviates, Victoriae Laetae Principium Perpertua, which translates, "Joyous victory to the eternal Prince." VOT P R on the shield abbreviates, Vota Populi Romani, which translates, "Vows of the Roman people." It is on this type, issued by Constantine the Great and Licinius I, that the symbols of Christianity, the Christogram and crucifix, were first used on Roman coins.
