Crisis of the Third Century there was an almost constant stream of men with aspirations to the Purple. Many attempted to overthrow the rule of Gallienus. One of these men, was Regalianus. Regalianus' attempted usurpation was hot on the heels of the attempted usurpation (and subsequent defeat) of Ingenuus, another military commander declared emperor by his men. Regalianus was acclaimed Augustus by his troops along the Danube river, possibly in a hope that he would use his new found power to secure the border against the barbarians. Unfortunately for Regalianus, his attempt to become emperor ended like his predecessor - D.E.D. dead...Possibly killed by his own men who feared retribution from Gallienus. An interesting side note on Regalianus is that he founded his own mint in Carnuntum. Coins depicted both him and his wife, Dryantilla. In recognition of his victory against the usurper Regalianus, coins were minted with the reverse legend "VICTORIA AVG III" to commemorate his third major victory. Apparently, these coins have legends that go all the way up to VIIII. In the lot of coins that I won last week for the princely sum of $25, along with a beautiful Helena, there was this Gallienus with the reverse of "VICTORIA AVG III" which led me to all of this interesting information that I didn't know before. If anyone has any other of Gallienus' VICTORIA AVG II-VIIII, please feel free to post them. I'd love to see them and hear about what victories their legends commemorate. Thanks for reading/looking!
