General: Aurelian worked his way through the ranks of the military before becoming Roman Emperor. Through successful campaigns including defeating the Gallic Empire in the west, and restoring parts of the Empire, he was able to end the Roman Empire's Crisis of the Third Century. Through this he earned the title Restitutor Orbis ('Restorer of the World') which is inscribed on much of the coinage issued in his name. During his reign, as part of coinage reform, the size of the antoninianus was increased and became silvered.
