Details

The Age of Chaos, also known as Military Anarchy and the Crisis of the Third Century, was a fifty-year period of extreme volatility that almost saw the disintegration of the mighty Roman Empire. No fewer than 20 would-be emperors claimed the throne, a veritable parade of usurpers, most of whom were dead within a year or two. The empire splintered into three rival states vying for ultimate power, barbarians of every stripe invaded almost constantly, and the so-called Plague of Cyprian killed off those emperors (and soliders) who did not meet a violent end. This set contains genuine bronze coins of Gallienus, Probus, Claudius II Gothicus, and Aurelian.
