The son and successor to Carus, the Roman Emperor Carinus started his time in power as a seemingly wise and just ruler. The trappings of power can corrupt even those with the strongest moral compass, and it is clear that Carinus was not among their ranks.
Sources reveal that he soon gave in to every debauchery, and he went down in history as ‘one of the worst Roman emperors’. Indeed, he was ultimately the subject of a ‘Damnatio Memoriae’, with his name erased from inscriptions, and his reign wiped from history. No one can be sure how he died – either killed by his own soldiers during the Battle of Margus against the future emperor Diocletian or murdered by a centurion whose wife he had raped – but given Carinus’ reputation, the latter explanation may be more accurate.
With his reign very brief, all Carinus coin types are considered scarce. Don’t miss the opportunity to secure a genuine Carinus coin – click add to cart now!
