The Roman Emperor Septimius Severus reigned from 193 until his death in 211. About 175, he married Paccia Marciana, a woman from Leptis Magna. After her death in 186, Severus found his second wife Julia Domna.
Julia was born in Roman Syria and in 187 she got married to Severus, with whom she had two sons, Caracalla and Geta. She was the first empress of the Severan Dynasty and as such she was well known for her political, social and philosophical influence.
After Caracalla killed Geta, he himself was assassinated which led Domna to commit suicide in 217.
This coin shows the Roman Emperor Septimus Severus and on the reverse we see his wife Julia Domna, mother of Caracalla and Geta.
