I just added two more pages to my site
"Introduction to Roman coins of the First Tetrarchy":
which I announced here recently. That page is a place to begin if you want to learn about coinage during the reign of Diocletian and his co-rulers.

The new pages are:
a page about all the follis types of the First Tetrarchy

and page about SACRA MONETA folles:
(which is the second most common type).

There were already several pages devoted to the GENIO POPVLI ROMANI type, which is by far the most common type:

Maximian, 286-305
with Moneta standing left, holding balance and cornucopia.
28-26 mm. 9.91 grams.
RIC Aquileia 29b "c. 300"

The tetrarchy had four rulers at once, making for interesting politics and coinage. Take a look at the main page: and see if you get interested!

The Tetrarchy is an often overlooked period of imperial coinage

I generally collect only the western mints London Trier Lyon Carthage Rome and Ticinum



These two are my favorites and deserve close ups

24-6mm 11.65 grams
Mint mark reads either Retrograde P or Q followed by T
Ticinum ?

28-30mm 12.75 grams
The mint mark reads P T
Again .... Ticinum ?
but the portrait virtually screams London !
(actually both portraits scream London ......)
The diameter is large and the weight is a bit heavy
To all appearances it is made of copper
My personal theory is that it is an overstrike on a first century copper As

IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !

I think ...... therefore I yam
