Coins of the Roman Emperors

Compiled by Mike DiMaio

This collection of imperial images on Roman coinage covers emperors of the third, fourth, and fifth centuries and is derived from H. Cohen, Description historique des monnaies frappées sous l'Empire romain, Paris, 1880-1892.. It is meant to supplement Justin Paola's web site "A Visual Compendium of Roman Emperors". Our collection of imperial images is used to illustrate the various essays that make up the De Imperatoribus Romanis: An Online Encyclopedia of Roman Emperors.
