RIC VI Carthage 24a

 

 

 

This coin celebrates the defeat of the Quinquegentiani (People of the Five Tribes), who were a confederation of Berbers in North Africa. They were under Roman rule, but rebelled in A.D. 289 and were successful for a few years until Maximianus Herculius launched a series of devastating attacks starting in A.D. 297 and finishing in A.D. 298, after which, the Quinquegentiani were never heard of again.

RIC VI Antioch 55a

 

The K-V on the reverse are probably marks of value “K as a Greek numeral signifying 20 (sestertii) and V as a Latin numeral 5 (denarii). If so, this issue, c 300-1, is the Antiochene reflection of the general insistence on monetary discipline at the time of the Maximal Edict.” (RIC VI pg 602)
