The radiate or Post-reform radiate (the actual name, like many Roman coins of this time, is unknown), was introduced by Diocletian during his reforms. It looked very similar to an Antoninianus even with a radiated crown, except it misses the XXI that numismatists believe was to represent 20 parts bronze to 1 part silver. The radiate had little or no content of silver.
