DEAR VISITORS

Welcome to AURELIAN COINS. This is a non-commercial project which is dedicated to the Roman Imperial coins of Aurelian. Lucius Dominius Aurelianus, Roman Emperor, 270-275, born of humble parents, near Sirmium in Pannonia, 9 September, 214; died 275.

During his reign, he defeated the Alamanni after a devastating war. He also defeated the Goths, Vandals, Juthungi, Sarmatians, and Carpi. Aurelian restored the Empire's eastern provinces after his conquest of the Palmyrene Empire in 273. The following year he conquered the Gallic Empire in the west, reuniting the Empire in its entirety. He was also responsible for the construction of the Aurelian Walls in Rome, and the abandonment of the province of Dacia. His successes effectively ended the Roman Empire's Crisis of the Third Century, earning him the title Restitutor Orbis or 'Restorer of the World'.

Here you can find the coins Catalogue with images which can help collectors with attributation of the coins. While working on the Catalogue we used materials from the Internet and from the 'Roman Imperial Coinage' book, volume V. At the COINAGE section, you can find an article about Aurelian coinage with the mints map. At the LINKS section we provide some links to sites concerning ancient history and numismatics.
