Brief rule in the Ancient Roman Empire usually means rare, low-mintage coinage for collectors – including this prized silver Denarius from the short A.D. 217-218 reign of Diadumenian. Hailed Caesar at age 8, the young boy bore that title for 13 months, before elevation to Augustus (emperor) to co-rule with his father Macrinus at age 9. But a month later, following the military defeat and execution of Macrinus at the hands of a rival, the young Diadumenian was put to death by the opposing forces.
Hand struck for just over a year, silver Denarii from Diadumenian's 217-218 reign as Caesar are especially scarce in high-quality condition. We have just a few coins available, so order this sought-after coin of Ancient Rome today!
