Gallienus Pegasus Antoninianus

Gallienus ruled as sole emperor from A.D. 260-268 during one of the most difficult times in the history of the empire. Not only was the empire facing natural disasters and invasions on all sides but he had to face at least 8 rebellions from his own governors and generals! He issued a fantastic group of bronze Antoniniani coins to honour the Gods, asking for their protection against these troubles. We sold out of these coins last time but we managed to buy a small group of the winged horse, Pegasus, rearing on its hind legs. These are designed to honour Sol, the personification of the sun. These are linked to the protection of the games that were run in all the Gods honour. The coins are Very Fine but because of the chaos at the time remember they may be a little weakly struck.
