AOM : A denarius type Roman coin of Allectus (C mint) c.293-296

Allectus was a Roman-Britannic usurper-emperor in Britain and northern Gaul. Usurper is a term used to describe an illegal claimant to the throne without securing "the consent of the governed."

Carausius was assassinated by his subordinate Allectus. Allectus himself was killed in the battle, having removed all insignia in the hope that his body would not be identified. Archaeology suggests that Calleva Atrebatum (Silchester) was the site of his defeat. {source Wikipedia}
