Why add this Roman Empire Billon Aurelianianus of Probus to your collection?
Following a successful military career, Marcus Aurelius Probus was appointed governor of the East by Emperor Tacitus. Upon the death of Tacitus in A.D. 276, the soldiers of Probus proclaimed him Emperor, the succession ratified by the Senate in A.D. 277. Struck at the Ticinum Mint in Italy from a metallic alloy called billon (bronze with a light silver wash), this Aurelianianus was minted during the reign of Roman Emperor Probus.
Stunning design details
The cuirassed bust of Emperor Probus appears on the obverse, facing right, adorned with a radiate crown, accompanied by the inscription "IMP C M AVR PROBVS P F AVG," meaning "Commander Caesar Marcus Aurelius Probus: Pious, Happy Emperor."
The reverse depicts Sol Invictus, patron of Roman soldiers, standing with his head turned to the left, raising his right hand, while holding a globe in his outstretched left hand. The image is surrounded by the inscription "CONSERVAT AVG," which means "preserver of the Emperors," with "TXXT" in exergue.
