Genuine Ancient Roman Coin - Diocletian - AD 284-305

Get a great deal on this Authentic Roman Coin auction presented by Property Room. Winning bidder will receive the exact coin pictured. Diocletian was pronounced emperor on November 20, 284 AD. In order to restore order in Gaul and to prevent usurpation of the throne, he named his friend Maximian as co-regent and placed the western part of the empire under his rule. In 293, the two of them took as co-regents Galerius, married to Diocletian's daughter Valeria and Constantine Chlorus. Diocletian continued to govern directly the Asiatic part of the empire and Egypt from the capital of Nicomedia. He made of the empire an absolutist monarchy on the Persian model. He secured the state borders implemented a new territorial partition of the empire separated military from civilian administration, reconstructing the inner organization of the army and state bureaucracy, and put in order the financial monetary and tax systems. He ordained that estates be hereditary, binding people in this way to their properties and cities. Diocletian passed a decree limiting prices. He took away from the Senate their former rights. Rome was no longer the capital. Although initially tolerant of Christianity, in 303 he issued an edict in Nicomediam in which he prohibited it. This brought about numerous executions, the confiscation of property, and the destruction of churches. On May 1, 305 he abdicated (persuading Maximian to do likewise), and retired to the palace he had prepared for his retirement. During the half century before his appearance there were no less than twenty emperors proclaimed by the Senate and at least as many usurpers and pretenders. Diocletian's seemingly fortuitous rise to power was not a mere episode but he succeeded to rule for two decades and lived to see a long retirement after abdicating, which amounts almost to a miracle.
