Maximian, 286 - 305, 306 - 308, and 310 A.D., Issued by Carausius
A rare British issue by the usurper Carausius, trying to appease the legitimate rulers Diocletian and Maximian. It is likely it was struck shortly after the failed invasion of Maximian in 288 or 289 A.D. which forced him to agree on a temporary peace. This reverse type is unlisted in RIC V for the Camolodunum (Colchester) mint.
