Ancient Roman Double Denarius minted with the image of the Roman Emperor Gordian III. The coin has been authenticated, encapsulated and graded AU ( about uncirculated) by NGC Ancients Division.

Gordian III’s grandfather and uncle, Gordian I & II, perished in a North African revolt in AD 238. Gordian II was appointed Caesar by joint emperors Babinus and Pepienus. The 13-year-old Caesar was honored via coinage in the less than 100 days he held the title before becoming Augustus.

The civil war that had killed Gordian III’s your predecessors allowed Rome’s enemies a moment to strike. The first three years of the young ruler’s tenure were under strong Senate guidance to deter the Goth’s and the Capri’s advancement. The remaining years of Gordian’s reign were met with more harsh battles, though this time with his trusted Commander of the Praetorian Guard at the helm. Gordian III’s young, untimely death in AD 244 is a mystery. Many think it was a coup led by Philip I while other attributes it to a battle against the Sasanians.
