Don’t miss this opportunity to own an especially nice bronze-silvered Antoninianus from the A.D. 284-305 reign of Diocletian – second only to Augustus as a great reformer and organizer of Ancient Rome. From humble beginnings, Diocletian rose through army ranks to become emperor for over 2 decades (following 50 years of military anarchy with 26 different rulers).
Understanding the challenges of a vast empire, Diocletian named Maximian as co-emperor to share responsibilities – and later appointed two caesars to further distribute military and political authority. Diocletian re-organized and reformed the provinces, army, tax system, currency and other institutions to strengthen the empire. And unlike the fate of most Roman rulers, Diocletian and Maximian quietly abdicated in A.D. 305 and turned full authority over to their caesars.
The coins offered here are of exceptional quality for their age and period of issue. The obverse depicts Diocletian with a radiant crown, while reverses will vary. Add the glory of Ancient Rome to your collection with this 1,700-year-old coinage treasure.
