Quintillus became emperor in A.D. 270 on the death of his brother, Claudius II Gothicus. He was emperor for either 17 or 117 days, depending which ancient writer you believe, but not long in any case.
This means he is an emperor whose coins are missing from many collections. We have a lovely group of bronze Antoninianus coins showing his radiate bust on the obverse and a standing figure on the reverse. They are Very Fine in grade but some have weak areas as they were struck in a time of crisis. These are scarce and difficult to find so get one quickly before our limited supplies run out.
Thinking of starting an ancient Roman coin collection? We are offering a 'starter collection' containing three different genuine bronze coins of different Roman Emperors spanning a 72 year period from AD 306-378, this also makes the coins at least 1640 years old.
Each coin will be in nice collectable condition, clearly identifiable with a well defined portrait of the emperor who issued it. The coins you will receive are struck in bronze and are genuine ancient Roman coins which were minted and circulated across the Empire between AD 306-378 issued by the Emperors Constantine The Great, Constantius II and Valens. Each coin comes with an information sheet with a short history of each emperor.
