A stunning post-abdication follis of Diocletian, struck in London circa AD 305-7. Following the joint abdications of Diocletian and Maximian on May 1st AD 305, coins continued to be struck in their names for several years. Unlike Maximian, Diocletian never resumed imperial power. A gorgeous coin struck on a full flan, sharp details and an even grey-green patina.
