Browsing Roman Imperial Coins of Jotapian


Jotapian led a short-lived revolt in Syria in the autumn of AD 249. The extreme rarity of his coins indicates that the revolt was brief, and the crude style tells us that he did not control a major mint. Bland ("Coinage of Jotapian") cites 18 antoniniani in total.
