Roman Empire Helena AD 324-328/30

Heraclea Reverse Helena as Securitas

Helena (Flavia Iulia Helena), known as St. Helena and Helena Augusta, lived from about 249-329 A.D. She is thought to have come from Drepanum, in the Roman province of Bithynia, because her son, the Emperor Constantine, renamed Drepanum Helenopolis after her. Helena's origins are obscure, but she is thought to have worked in a tavern where she met the soldier Flavius Valerius Constantius, who became her husband. Her date of death is approximate and based on Eusebius saying she was 80 years old
Saint Helena (Latin: Flavia Iulia Helena Augusta) also known as Saint Helen, Helena Augusta or Helena of Constantinople (ca. 246/50 – 18 August 330) was the consort of Emperor Constantius, and the mother of Emperor Constantine the Great. She is traditionally credited with finding the relics of the True Cross, with which she is invariably represented in Christian iconography.
