He died of illness on November 3, 361 near Tarsus while marching to suppress Julian II, who had declared himself Augustus in early 360.(From MONETA, from www.numus.com)|
|Because I collect a lot of uncleaned, and expect that I will end up having many Late Roman Bronze (LRB) coins, the coins will be separated by mint. This is for a couple of reasons. 1.) This more closley follows the way RIC has organzied these coins, 2.) It will help me to keep the pages smaller so that those of us that are forced to use dial-up, won't grow beards waiting for the pages to load!! At some point I will probably be forced to split the mint pages up by reverse type. We'll see how many more coins my lovely wife will let me buy!! So click on the Mint to see the coins that I have from that mint.|
