Maximinus Thrax Brass Sestertius. Ancient Roman Imperial Coin. Rome Mint
By admin, September 5, 2018
Here I present a very high quality brass Sestertius of Maximinus I Thrax. With lots of high quality details this chunky almost fat Sestertius is a must have for collectors. Maximinus Thrax Latin: Gaius Julius Verus Maximinus Augustus; c. 173 May 238, also known as Maximinus I, was Roman Emperor from 235 to 238. Maximinus is described by several ancient sources, though none are contemporary except Herodian’s Roman History. He was a so-called barracks emperor of the 3rd century; his rule is often considered to mark the beginning of the Crisis of the Third Century. He died at Aquileia while attempting to put down a Senatorial revolt. Good quality, and a good addition to any collection. A nice portrait and reverse gives this coin real character and appeal. I want this particular coin to go to a good home…. This is an ancient artefact / coin and should appeal to all numismatists either amateur or professional. The item “Maximinus Thrax Brass Sestertius.
