Domitius Domitianus

Augustus c.296-297


This obscure usurper gained control of Alexandria around the year 296. Diocletian diverted his efforts in regaining this key province and set Alexandria under a long-term siege. Eight months later Domitius 's forces blinked and handed over the pretender to Diocletian who had him promptly executed for treason.

You aren 't likely to see many coins of this Egypt-based usurper. Though not of extreme rarity, they 're seldom available and can be expected to cost at least $1,000 each unless in very poor condition. All known coins so far are bronze Folles that look indistinguishable from other Folles of the period with the exception of the legend.
