Coins from Late Roman Empire
The Late Roman Empire category covers the final years of the Roman Empire as a united realm; from the ascencion of Valentinian I on 364 AD to the death of Theodosius I in 395 AD, the last emperor to rule both the western and eastern parts of the empire.

This is not to say that the Empire was united during this period of history; the brothers Valentinian I and Valens ruled separate halfs of the empire in a fashion superficially similar to the brothers Honorius & Arcadius, the sons of Theodosius I. Still, Valentinian dynasty and Thodosius I represent the last competent emperors who even attempted to pursue policies which benefitted both halfs of the Empire and after their deaths the two halves would drift slowly but surely apart.

Militarily, this period was characterized by the invasions and revolts of the Goth with the disastrous Battle of Adrianople at the center of the stage; Valens was killed alongside two thirds of the Roman army. The goths would have free access to plundering the countryside for years, and much of the Roman army would henceforth consist of Germanic mercenaries. This would lead to further problems down the road, especially in the West.
