Description

MINT NEVER HINGED ORIGINAL GUM VERY FINE

The miniature sheet shows a plan of Milan on the background, while the Forma Urbis (MAP) of Milan at the time of the Edict is featured as background. The stamp on the left features two figures on the throne, taken from the bas-relief of the portal of the Cathedral of Milan, and represents those who issued the Edict: Constantine on the left and Licinius on the right. On the stamp on the right the portrait of the emperor taken from a numismatic medallion found near Salonica and held in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Wien. Behind the medallion the map of Europe shows Mediolanum and the volute of a parchment, referring to the drafting of the Edict, with the symbol of the Chrismon of Constantine. In February 313, Constantine I, emperor controlling the western part of the Roman Empire and Licinius, controlling the Balkans, met in Milan and, among other things, agreed to treat the Christians benevolently.
