Commentary


C’est l’un des revers les plus rares pour Valérien Ier. C’est la première fois que nous le proposons à la vente. Dans l’ouvrage récent de Bruno Bourdel, “Les antoniniens émis sous le règne conjoint des empereurs Valérien et Gallien”, ce type, n°29 y est très justement classé comme R4, avec moins de 10 exemplaires connus !.

Shapur (Sapor), Sassanian king arrives at Antioch the following year. Valerian I began the great persecution against Christians in 258. In 259, the Empire, already weakened, is invaded on the Rhine-Danube limes and East, Shapur (Sapor) seizes Antioch. Valerian to meet him, but was defeated and taken prisoner. Shapur (Sapor) will use the fallen emperor as a step before doing live skinning. Christians see it as God's punishment for the persecution Gallien hastens to stop.
