Constantius_Gallus_Bronze_Coin_in_Very_Fine_obv

Constantius Gallus Bronze Coin in Very Fine

Born in Etruria around A.D. 325 Gallus was a sickly child, saving him in A.D. 337 from the purges by the sons of Constantine I. By A.D. 351 Constantius II was ruling alone and needed support. He raised his cousin Gallus to the rank of Caesar, gave him the name Constantius and appointed him governor over the Eastern provinces of the Roman Empire. But Gallus was not fit for the job. He was so tyrannical and brutal that the local citizens were forced to complain directly to Constantius II to avoid retribution. Constantius recalled Gallus to Italy, had him arrested on the journey, tried and executed in A.D 354! As he only reigned three years Gallus is the hardest to find of all the Constantinian ruling dynasty. These coins, in Fine and Very Fine, show a soldier spearing a fallen horseman on the reverse with a profile bust of Constantius Gallus on the obverse. Gallus will be missing from many collections and our supplies are limited, do not miss out.

Constantius II Bronze Fine Soldier spearing fallen horseman_obv

Constantius II Bronze Fine Soldier spearing fallen horseman

Continuing our series of the famous Constantinian Dynasty we offer Constantius II, the last surviving son of Constantine the Great. Constantius II was born in A.D. 317 and named after his grandfather, the Tetrach Constantius I, who came to Britain and died at York. After Constantine the Great died in A.D. 337 Constantius II shared the rule of the empire with his two brothers. After a 13 years of tension Constantius II emerged as the sole ruler of the Roman Empire. He was involved in many wars throughout his reign, putting down rebellions and defending the empire against invaders. He died in A.D. 361 on the way to fight another rival, who became his successor, Julian II. These bronze coins offered here in Fine have the reverse design of a Roman soldier spearing a fallen horseman with the obverse showing a profile bust of Constantius II. We have offered different types of Constantius II before, check your collection as we suspect you will not have this reverse from this interesting and successful ruler.

Crispus_Follis_Obv

Crispus Bronze coin in Fine

Continuing our series of the famous Constantinian Dynasty we offer Crispus, the son who was second only to Constantine before being executed. A 1700-year-old mystery that will likely never be solved. Flavius Julius Crispus was born around A.D. 300, the son of Constantine the Great by his first wife Minervina. Made Caesar in A.D. 317 Crispus had a very successful military career, even helping his father to overcome and defeat the rival emperor Licinius in A.D. 324. He was all but heir to the throne but in A.D. 326 he was mysteriously executed on the orders of his father, Constantine the Great. The best theory we have is that his stepmother, the Empress Fausta, engineered it for her own son’s advancement as shortly after Fausta herself was dead on the orders of her devastated and furious husband. These bronze coins were struck in the early A.D. 320s and have various reverses. Crispus does not reign long and after his death, a ‘Damnatio Memoriae’ was enacted meaning his coins are Scarce, and we have limited stock available for this coin. These coins remain some of the best sources of information for him being Caesar. We offer them here in Fine, do not miss out.

Diocletian Bronze Antoninianus Fine_obv

Diocletian Bronze Antoninianus Fine

Diocletian was born of humble origin around A.D. 245 in Dalmatia near Split and rose through the ranks of the military to high command. He manoeuvred his way to be emperor of the Roman Empire in A.D. 284 then appointed an old army colleague, Maximian, as co-emperor. Diocletian then settled the problem of succession by appointing two junior Caesars, bringing stability after 60 years of chaos. He spent much of his reign campaigning and overhauled the tax system, reforming the coinage in an attempt to counter inflation. Unlike any emperor before or after he voluntarily abdicated in A.D. 305 and retired to his palace in Split, dying there in A.D. 311. The coins we offer here are Bronze Antoninianus in a Fine grade with various reverses showing gods and goddesses. Own a coin of this pivotal emperor who saved and then paved the way for the survival of the empire.

Gordian III Nicaea Bronze AE18/19 Fine_obv

Gordian III Nicaea Bronze AE18/19 Fine

Born in 225 A.D, Gordian III became Roman Emperor at the age of 13, reigning from 238 to 244 AD. His ascension followed the chaotic Year of the Six Emperors. Despite his youth, Gordian III faced major challenges such as the Sassanian Empire’s incursions. Tragically, Gordian III died under suspicious circumstances at the age of 19, sparking speculation about possible foul play in the imperial court. These coins were struck in the ancient Bithynian city of Nicaea (now İznik, Turkey) which is famous for the council of Nicaea in 325 A.D by Constantine I which formed the basis for Christianity today. The coins have the legends in Greek with the bust of Gordian III on the obverse and three to four army standards on the reverse with the legend N-I-K-AI-EWN (Nicaea) between the standards.

Gordian III, Moesia Superior, Viminacium AE Sestertius Very Good

Gordian III was proclaimed sole emperor of the Roman Empire at the age of thirteen! Very little is recorded of the events of Gordian’s six year reign, which in ancient writings is usually a sign of peace and prosperity. At this time Viminacium was a city in Moesia Superior, modern Serbia. At 40,000 inhabitants it was so big it had been given the right to mint local small change. Well, they’re not so small! They are Bronze, roughly 30mm and weight about 15g. A solid coin! They show Gordian’s head on the obverse with the goddess of Moesia on the reverse flanked by a lion and a bull. They grade Very Good with some showing a little corrosion so they are priced accordingly. As well as your collection they will make great presents for a youngster or anyone interested in history.

Gratian A.D. 367-83. Bronze Coin_rev

Gratian Bronze Very Fine

Gratian was the son of the emperor Valentinian I and in A.D. 367 was made Augustus at only seven years old. His father died in A.D. 375 and his uncle Valens in A.D. 378 leaving him sole ruler of the whole Roman Empire at 19! Realising he could not rule alone Gratian promoted the successful general Theodosius to Augustus in the East. They fought off multiple barbarian invasions until in A.D. 383 Magnus Maximus, the commander in Britain, thought he could do better and rebelled. The unfortunate Gratian was deserted by his troops and murdered at Lugdunum (Lyon), just 24 years old. Gratian had a turbulent reign of constant border warfare and was a fervent Christian, famously removing the ancient Altar of Victory from the Senate in Rome! The coins of Gratian are a bit harder to fi nd than those of his father and uncle, likely from the instability at the time. We can off er bronze coins of Gratian in Very Fine and Fine condition with various reverses.
