Crisis and Decline Era 235-258 AD


The crisis began with the assassination of the Emperor, Alexander Severus. The next approximate 50 years would bring 20-25 claimants to the throne as well as invasion, civil war, plague and economic depression which nearly destroyed the Roman Empire. Many coins of this period are very rare to the common ones which can also be very crude in manufacture.

Recovery of the Empire Era 268-285 AD


The recovery began once Claudius II was appointed by Gallienus, the first in a series of many strong emperors to come. After achieving victory against a massive Gothic army, he earned the name "Gothicus" as well as "Germanicus Maximus" after a victory against Germanic tribes. Unfortunately, the Plague of Cyprian claimed his life. His successor Aurelian would conquerer the remaining states and unify the Roman Empire by 274 AD.

The Tetrarchy Era 285-313 AD


Originally began as a diarchy, Maximian as co-emperor in the west, Diocletian as co-emperor in the east. Both co-emperors decided two Caesars were needed to address both civic and military problems. Galerius and Constantius Chlorus were appointed to the position, thus the first Tetrarchy was achieved. The second Tetrarchy came into existence after Diocletian and Maximian retired in 305. Two new Caesars Severus II and Maximinus were appointed, as well as Maxentius being declared as a usurper, and Licinius being appointed as Augustus in the west. Long story short, the Tetrarchy failed, leaving Constantine I the eventual victor and sole Augustus of the Roman Empire by 324. Coins no longer are artistic as they once were, although they were well made and a system of mint marks came to see the quality high in most respects.

Constantinian Dynasty Era 305-363 AD


The Constantinian Dynasty named after Constantine I the Great, also termed for the entire ruling family from Constantius I Chlorus to the death of Julian II - The Apostate. Most of the coins carry on in the tradition from the Tetrarchy period, being of high quality as the mint mark system continues. A great deal of coins will be found from this period.

The Late Empire - West - 364-476 AD


The late Roman Empire begins to decline after the Constantinian Dynasty comes to an end. After Jovian's death, the Valentinian dynasty comes into power as well as the Theodosian Dynasty. The empire officially became divided in 395 when Theodosius I passed away of edema. His son Honorius assumed the throne of the western half. The western half of the empire was never re-united with it's eastern half and then declined until the western Roman Empire was no more in 476 AD. Coins of this era steadily decline in size and quality until they are nothing more than small crude chunks of metal issued by emperors such as Valentinian III.

The Late Empire - East - 383-491 AD


The empire officially became divided in 395 when Theodosius I passed away of edema. His son Arcadius assumed the throne of the eastern half of the Roman Empire. Many emperors followed after Arcadius, until the reform passed by Anastasius I which marks the beginning of the Byzantine era. Coins by Arcadius were some of the best minted coins of this era. Gradually, the coins diminished in weight and quality, becoming nothing more than a small slug the size of a pencil eraser. Most coins of this era defy attribution.

Roman Byzantium 491-1452 AD


Starting with Anastasius I, the eastern Roman Empire continued to endure and thrive until it's fall in 1452 by the Ottoman Turks. Now called the Byzantine Empire as a modern convention. During ancient times, those of the Byzantine Empire more than likely referred to themselves as the Roman Empire. Coinage went so low in quality being crude in manufacture that a reform was needed. Anastasius I not only reformed the economy, but also the quality of the coinage. Coins from the Byzantine Empire evolved into another style, no longer looking anything like Roman Imperial coins a few hundred years ago, to some extent.
