1059-1067 AD
Gold Coin of Constantine X. Fifty-three and in poor health at his accession, Constantine seemed to have been chosen for his ability to get along with everyone rather than any noticeable talents. The chief reigns of power were held by the new emperor's wife, Eudocia, who held a very public power role and was referred to as 'The Great Empress of the Romans'. Constantine is depicted in regal apparel. On the obverse, Christ enthroned.
