https://www.cointalk.com/threads/restoration-coinage-updates.373787/ Which got me thinking about other restoration coins. I have these three that I like from Aurelian, Probus and Valentinian. Aurelian - RESTITVT*ORBIS This means RESTORER OF THE WORLD, basically, which makes sense because Aurelian did, in fact, "restore the world" by taking back a couple secessionist empires and fending off usurpers. I like this text because it's sort of an interesting ligate - intentional or not. The full text would be RESTITVTOR ORBIS. However, the last two letters of the first word and first two letters of the second word are the same, so why not just ligate them together into RESTITVTORBIS! (of course, they did put the dot between the T and the O, so maybe they were in fact just abbreviating the RESTITVTOR part.) Probus - RESTITVTORBIS After Aurelian Probus kept it that train going and also proclaimed himself the restorer of the world. In this one, there is no dot between the T and the O, so maybe the ligate is intentional here. Finally, last one I have is: Valentinian I - RESTITVTORREIP Instead of restoring the entire world, Valentinian "only" restored the republic. Which is odd, come to think of it, since Rome hadn't been a republic for a couple hundred years at this point. But still, pretty neat proclamation of authority and power. Under Valentinian the Great Conspiracy was defeated, so it certainly seems like he earned his title. What other RESTITVTOR coins are there from the later empire?
