Historical background


(07/270-09/275) Lucius Domitius Aurelianus

Aurelian reformed the coinage of billon creating a new currency, the aurelianus or antoninien with XXI mark in the West or in the East KA. For 30 years and the thesis of J.-P. Callu, much has been said about the meaning of these marks which distinguish the parts after the reform of 274. One hypothesis would aureliani 20 containing 5% money is identical to a piece of pure silver. These seem to be pruned aureliani 1/84e Book (3.87 g). Another theory long defended by the author was to explain the epigraph as a mark of value XX or K = I or A. The new name then corresponding to 20 sesterces (HS) was the unit of account or 5 dollars. Today, the value of the new currency, aurelianus, would be 4 dollars. Return to monetary orthodoxy, thanks to victories over Palmyra and the Gallic Empire allowed a monetary recovery that would survive, somehow, until the reform of Diocletian in 294, creating perhaps a significant increase in prices. uses cookies to guarantee a better user experience and to carry out statistics of visits.
