Brother and co-emperor with Carinus, Numerian reigned briefly before dying whilst on campaign against the Persians in the east. Numerian’s death was allegedly due to natural causes, but it seems more likely that he was murdered in yet another of the endless conspiracies that took place against Roman Emperors during the Crisis of the Third Century.

The two claimants to the throne – Aper and Diocletian – sought the support of the army, and it was the latter who triumphed. Diocletian swore on oath that he did not kill Numerian, and then turned and struck Aper down with a sword in full view of the soldiers.

As for the unfortunate Numerian, his reign lasted for little more than a year, and all coin types issued in his name are scarce. Grasp this fantastic opportunity to own a genuine coin of one of the ‘rare emperors’ – click add to cart now!
