Why add this ancient Billon Double Denarius of Romano-Gallic Emperor Victorinus to your collection?
The Romano-Gallic Empire was a relatively small territory that broke away from the northernmost region of the Roman Empire during the Crisis of the Third Century, and functioned as a separate state for the short period of A.D. 260-274. Marcus Piavonius Victorinus was ruler of the Romano-Gallic Empire from A.D. 269-271. This Double Denarius was struck from a metallic alloy called billon, a bronze base metal with a light silver wash.
Imagery depicting the Goddess of Peace
The obverse depicts the image of Emperor Victorinus, bearded, draped and cuirassed, facing right, embellished with a traditional radiate crown, surrounded by the inscription "IMP C PIAV VICTORINVS AVG" (Imperator Caesar Piavonius Victorinus).
The reverse features Pax, the goddess of peace, standing left, an olive branch and scepter in her grasp, accompanied by the inscription "PAX AVG." The Mint mark of Trier (Germany) appears, which is a "V" in the left field, and a star in the right.
