Buy a coin of the winner of the Four Emperors Year!
Titus Flavius Vespasianus was the winner of the so-called four-emperor year 68 AD. After the death of Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius and Vespasian made claims to the imperial throne. First Galba was proclaimed emperor, later assassinated by rebellious supporters of Otho. Otho himself committed suicide after his defeat in the First Battle of Bedriacum. Vitellius then gained the imperial dignity, but was assassinated by supporters of Vespasian during the storming of the Capitol in Rome. Allegedly, this happened against Vespasian's will, which is why he is considered the only player who did not shed a drop of blood himself.
