or Post-reform radiate
(the actual name, like many Roman coins of this time, is unknown), was introduced by Diocletian
during his reforms. It looked very similar to an Antoninianus
even with a radiated
crown, except it misses the XXI that numismatists
believe was to represent 20 parts bronze
to 1 part silver
. The radiate had little or no content of silver.
The weight varies between 2.23 and 3.44 grams .
Only one image is defined on coins found Jupiter presents Victory on a globe to Diocletian (Wildwinds ) with the mintmark in between the human images
