Why add a Random Roman Empire Billon Nummus struck 3rd-5th Centuries AD to your collection?
The Nummus was introduced as part of the coinage reform of Emperor Diocletian in 294 AD, originally as a silver-washed bronze (billon) coin measuring about 30 mm in diameter with a weight of 10 grams. Similar to other Roman Imperial denominations, the Nummus experienced significant reductions in size and weight, resulting in half and quarter Nummus coins in the 4th century AD.
Billon Nummus Imagery
The obverse features a legend declaring the issuing ruler's name and title, encircling the draped, laureate portrait of the Emperor.
Reverse imagery varied by ruler, with the most frequently illustrated theme being a celebration of military prowess, portraying the Emperor or his warriors in a triumphant pose.
