** PLEASE NOTE: This is the exact coin you will receive! As all of these ancient coins were made by hand (and have aged about 1700 years), they all have unique shapes and printings; and are therefore one of a kind.
Gallienus - while originally co-ruling with his father (Valerian), he ruled alone from 260-268 AD. He was known for ruling during the Crisis of the Third Century, which almost caused the collapse of the Roman Empire. He was also responsible for a late growth of Roman culture (similar to a Renaissance).
