Picture of Carinus Antoninianus GVF

Carinus Antoninianus GVF

Before the Crisis of the Third Century most cities in the Roman Empire did not have walls, dried fruit from Syria could be bought in Britain and copper from Cornwall was traded in Egypt! Carinus was in his early thirties when he was made Caesar by Carus, his father, in A.D. 282. More competent than his brother, Numerian, he quelled disturbances in Gaul & Germania. He returned to Rome in charge of the West while his father and brother went to war in the East in A.D. 283. Bias sources have him marrying then divorcing nine women, forcing others into affairs and murdering people he deemed disrespectful. Regardless, he never saw Carus or Numerian again but in their place returned Diocletian at the head of the victorious eastern army. In July A.D. 285 they met at the Battle of the Margus River (the modern Morava River) in Moesia. Legends state Carinus was winning when he was betrayed and stabbed in the back for forcing himself on that person’s wife. Some name them as his Praetorian Prefect and joint Consul, Aristobulus, which appears to have some truth as Diocletian kept Aristobulus in service and later made him governor of multiple provinces. So maybe some of those rumours were right! But judging by the two year run of coins for his wife, Magnia Urbica, the marrying rumour isn’t. This ended what we call ‘The Crisis of the Third Century’ as Diocletian stabilised the Roman Empire with the Tetrarchy system. We offer you Antoninianus of Carinus, the last emperor of the Crisis, in Very Fine Condition with a variety of reverses. After his death what we call a ‘Damnatio Memoriae’ was enacted, Diocletian destroyed his inscriptions and coins, trying to wipe him from the record. This means he is Scarce and a difficult coin to find. Don’t miss out on your chance to get one of these coins!

Severus Alexander Nicaea Fine

Born around A.D.208 Alexander was put on the throne in A.D. 222, the last of the Severan Dynasty. The young emperor was popular with the people but relied heavily on his mother, Julia Mamaea, alienating the army who eventually murdered them both in A.D. 235 in Mainz, Germany. These bronze coins were struck throughout his reign in the city of Nicaea, the modern Turkish town of Iznik. It is famous historically for the later Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325 by Constantine the Great which formed the basis for Christianity today. These coins have Greek writing, show Severus Alexander’s bust on the obverse with three or four army standards on the reverse. We offer them here in Fine. Get a coin almost 1800 years old from the birthplace of the Christian Creed.
