Roman Coins of the Late Imperial Period

The digital collection Roman Coins of the Late Imperial Period represents a selection, from Special Collections and University Archives, of twenty-two coins from a larger collection of 1,600 assorted numismatic objects minted in the late centuries of the Roman Empire. These coins were selected for digitization based on their condition and historical value; the selection spans the early Third into the late 4th centuries, encompassing the Crisis of the Third Century (from Gordian III, 238-244 C.E.), through Constantinian dynasty, and their successors (to Valens, 364-368 C.E.).
