Romano-British Empire, Carausius, Mid 286 - Spring or Early Summer 293 A.D.
The reverse of this coin is dedicated to harmony with the army. Nothing was more important to the usurper emperor Carausius. The soldiers had made him emperor; yet, as had been proven time and again, an emperor was always at risk that his soldiers would betray and assassinate him. His army remained loyal, but Carausius' was murdered by his chief minister, Allectus.
