New Roman Emperor Discovered!
Feb 25, 2004
In an incredible development on the archeology scene, it appears that a new, even if short-lived, Roman Emperor has been discovered. Emperor Domitianus (IMP C DOMITIANUS P F AUG), not to be confused with the Domitian of the 1st century AD, was likely a British usurper who ruled in 271 AD. The dying days of the break away Gallic Empire may have more secrets in store, but the excavation of this coin (re-affirming another found a century ago), is ground breaking in more ways than one.
