From A.D. 253-260, Gallienus ruled jointly with his father, Valerian, and on his own from 260-268. During that time he endured invasions, rebellions, plague and economic malaise. Seeking divine assistance to preserve the Roman Empire, Gallienus struck a variety of bronze Antoniniani depicting real and mythical animals associated with and honoring prominent Roman gods. He was one of the last emperors to issue an extensive “animal” themed series. This historic 4-coin set features animals of the wild: the deer, goat, moose and panther.
