A.D. 249-251 Decius and Herennius Silver Antoninianus Set

Own a set of two ancient silver coins depicting father and son co-emperors whose brief reigns ended when they became the first Roman rulers slain by foreign forces. Trajan Decius was proclaimed emperor by his troops in A.D. 249, and he confirmed his authority by defeating emperor Philip I in battle at Verona. Decius soon made his teenage son Herennius Etruscus second-in-command with the rank of Caesar. Campaigning successfully in A.D. 251 against the Goths who had invaded Roman territory, Decius and Herennius were killed when the Gothic leader ambushed and devastated the pursuing Roman army at Abrittus.

Hand struck over 1,750 years ago, these scarce silver Antoniniani are displayed in a FREE leatherette case, and you’ll SAVE off individual prices. Supplies are limited – add this unique and historic father & son set to your collection today!
