A new book for GALLIENUS collectors.

Recommended Posts


Cédric Wolkow, at the beginning of the year, is giving us a new book of 82 pages devoted to the coinage of Gallienus for the Rome mint in 262-263 AD, with the theme of the Decennalia (tenth anniversary of the reign) and the Donativa (imperial presents intended for soldiers and high dignitaries). This is the penultimate of the series, reserved for the Rome workshop before a long-awaited synthesis on the subject. Gallienus was in fact the first emperor to celebrate the Decennalia since Severus Alexander (221-235), the others having died before being able to celebrate them.



In total, of all the types, the author was able to identify only 274 specimens, often known by a single specimen for several varieties. This issue from the Rome mint is therefore particularly rare. Forty plates illustrate all the varieties: 120 coins are photographed at 1.5 scale and 34  at scale 1. At only 15 euros, don't wait to get it; with low print runs, these books are quickly sold out.
