I'm thinking of buying an Aurelian Antoninianus coin but I'm having trouble finding more information about it. The exergue on the reverse is a T, I'd really like to know what the letter means on this coin. The seller said that this coin is a Milian minted coin. It would also be helpful if anyone can give an estimate for the price of this coin.

Yes it would be this:

Aurelian Antoninianus, 270-5, Mediolanum (Milan). Aurelian, radiate, cuirassed, right, IMP AVRELIANVS AVG. Aurelian, standing right, holding sceptre or spear, receiving globe from Jupiter, standing left, holding sceptre, IOVI CONSER (RIC V, 129) http://numismatics.org/ocre/id/ric.5.aur.129

The T is the mintmark, indicating the mint and officina that made it.

I concur with the above identification. I see that similar specimens, albeit perhaps in somewhat better condition, have recently sold in a $35-45 range, although I wouldn't presume to endorse those sales as representing a valuation of this particular piece. They may, however, constitute an upper limit on what you might want to pay.

The seller is asking $50 so it seems that the pricing is higher but relatively fair

The T is for Latin tertius, meaning "third" (workshop). Given the condition, I'd say $25 is closer to 'fair' than $50.

For $50, I'd want something with better details and silvering.
This is some what I paid for a 3 Antonini lot: I think the Aurelian was a bit much, but the other two made up for it.
