Marcus Aurelius Severus Antoninus Augustus. From AD 198 to 217. A member of the Severan Dynasty. He was the eldest son of Septimius Severus. Caracalla reigned jointly with his father from 198 until Severus’ death in 211. Caracalla then ruled jointly with his younger brother Geta. With whom he had a fraught relationship, until he had Geta murdered later that year. Caracalla’s reign was marked by domestic instability and external invasions from the Germanic people. Caracalla is presented in ancient sources as a tyrant and cruel leader, an image that has survived into modernity. Present Caracalla as a soldier first and emperor second. In the 12th century, Geoffrey of Monmouth. Started the legend of Caracalla’s role as the king of Britain. Later, in the 18th century, Caracalla’s memory was revived in the works of French artists due to the parallels between Caracalla’s apparent tyranny and that of King Louis XVI. Modern works continue to portray Caracalla as a psychopathic and evil ruler. His rule is remembered as being one of the most tyrannical of all Roman emperors. Caracalla’s reign was notable for the Antonine Constitution. , also known as the Edict of Caracalla , which granted Roman citizenship. To nearly all freemen throughout the Roman Empire. The edict gave all the enfranchised men Caracalla’s adopted praenomen. Domestically, Caracalla was known for the construction of the Baths of Caracalla. Which became the second largest baths in Rome, for the introduction of a new Roman currency named the antoninianus. A sort of double denarius, and for the massacres he enacted against the people of Rome and elsewhere in the empire.

Hadrian, 117-138 As circa 132-134, Rome Mint, 25.5mm. Bare-headed and draped bust right, HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS. Holding patera and sceptre, CLEMENTIA AVG COS III P P SC. Hadrian (/hedrin/; Latin: Publius Aelius Hadrianus Augustus; 24 January 76 10 July 138) was Roman emperor from 117 to 138. He is known for building Hadrian’s Wall, which marked the northern limit of Britannia. He also rebuilt the Pantheon, constructed the Temple of Venus and Roma, and may have rebuilt the Serapeum of Alexandria. Philhellene in most of his tastes, he is considered by some to have been a humanist. Hadrian was born Publius Aelius Hadrianus into a Hispano-Roman family. Although Italica near Santiponce (in modern-day Spain) is often considered his birthplace, his actual place of birth remains uncertain. It is generally accepted that he came from a family with centuries-old roots in Hispania. His predecessor, Trajan, was a maternal cousin of Hadrian’s father. Trajan did not designate an heir officially, but according to his wife Pompeia Plotina, he named Hadrian emperor immediately before his death. Trajan’s wife and his friend Licinius Sura were well disposed towards Hadrian, and he may well have owed his succession to them. During his reign, Hadrian travelled to nearly every province of the Empire. An ardent admirer of Greece, he sought to make Athens the cultural capital of the Empire and ordered the construction of many opulent temples in the city. He used his relationship with his Greek lover Antinous to underline his philhellenism, and this led to the establishment of one of the most popular cults of ancient times. Hadrian spent a great deal of time with the military; he usually wore military attire and even dined and slept among the soldiers. He ordered rigorous military training and drilling and made use of false reports of attacks to keep the army on alert. On his accession to the throne, Hadrian withdrew from Trajan’s conquests in Mesopotamia, Assyria and Armenia, and even considered abandoning Dacia. Late in his reign he suppressed the Bar Kokhba revolt in Judaea, renaming the province Syria Palaestina. In 138 Hadrian adopted Antoninus Pius on the condition that he adopt Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus as his own heirs. They would eventually succeed Antoninus as co-emperors. Hadrian died the same year at Baiae. International Buyers – Please Note. The item “Hadrian. As circa 132-134 AD. Ancient Roman Bronze Coin” is in sale since Friday, December 08, 2017.

Maximinus I, 235-238 AD Denarius circa 235-236 AD, Rome Mint, 20mm. Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust right, IMP MAXIMINVS PIVS AVG. Victoria advancing r, holding palm-branch and wreath, VICTORIA AVG. Maximinus Thrax Latin: Gaius Julius Verus Maximinus Augustus; c. 173 May 238, also known as Maximinus I, was Roman Emperor from 235 to 238. Most likely Maximinus was of Thraco-Roman origin (believed so by Herodian in his writings). According to the notoriously unreliable Augustan History (Historia Augusta), he was born in Thrace or Moesia to a Gothic father and an Alanic mother, an Iranian people of the Scythian-Sarmatian branch; however, the supposed parentage is highly unlikely, as the presence of the Goths in the Danubian area is first attested after the beginning of the Crisis of the Third Century. British historian Ronald Syme, writing that “the word’Gothia’ should have sufficed for condemnation” of the passage in the Augustan History, felt that the burden of evidence from Herodian, Syncellus and elsewhere pointed to Maximinus having been born in Moesia. The references to his “Gothic” ancestry might refer to a Thracian Getae origin (the two populations were often confused by later writers, most notably by Jordanes in his Getica), as suggested by the paragraphs describing how “he was singularly beloved by the Getae, moreover, as if he were one of themselves” and how he spoke “almost pure Thracian”. His background was, in any case, that of a provincial of low birth, and was seen by the Senate as a barbarian, not even a true Roman, despite Caracallas edict granting citizenship to all freeborn inhabitants of the Empire. In many ways, Maximinus was similar to the later Thraco-Roman emperors of the 3rd-5th century Licinius, Galerius, Aureolus, Leo the Thracian, etc. , elevating themselves, via a military career, from the condition of a common soldier in one of the Roman legions to the foremost positions of political power. He joined the army during the reign of Septimius Severus, but did not rise to a powerful position until promoted by Alexander Severus. Maximinus was in command of Legio IV Italica, composed of recruits from Pannonia, who were angered by Alexander’s payments to the Alemanni and his avoidance of war. The troops, among whom included the Legio XXII Primigenia, elected the stern Maximinus, killing young Alexander and his mother at Moguntiacum (modern Mainz). The Praetorian Guard acclaimed him emperor, and their choice was grudgingly confirmed by the Senate, who were displeased to have a peasant as emperor. His son Maximus became caesar.

Holding sceptre, resting elbow upon column to right and pointing to globe to left. Trajan (/tredn/; Latin: Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nervae filius Augustus; 18 September 53 8 August 117 AD) was Roman emperor from 98 to 117 AD. Officially declared by the Senate optimus princeps (“the best ruler”), Trajan is remembered as a successful soldier-emperor who presided over the greatest military expansion in Roman history, leading the empire to attain its maximum territorial extent by the time of his death. He is also known for his philanthropic rule, overseeing extensive public building programs and implementing social welfare policies, which earned him his enduring reputation as the second of the Five Good Emperors who presided over an era of peace and prosperity in the Mediterranean world. Born in the city of Italica in the province of Hispania Baetica, Trajan’s non-patrician family was of Italian and Iberian origin. Trajan rose to prominence during the reign of emperor Domitian. Serving as a legatus legionis in Hispania Tarraconensis, in 89 Trajan supported Domitian against a revolt on the Rhine led by Antonius Saturninus. In September 96, Domitian was succeeded by Marcus Cocceius Nerva, an old and childless senator who proved to be unpopular with the army. After a brief and tumultuous year in power, culminating in a revolt by members of the Praetorian Guard, Nerva was compelled to adopt the more popular Trajan as his heir and successor. He died on 27 January 98 and was succeeded by his adopted son without incident. Trajan’s war against the Parthian Empire ended with the sack of the capital Ctesiphon and the annexation of Armenia and Mesopotamia. His campaigns expanded the Roman Empire to its greatest territorial extent. In late 117, while sailing back to Rome, Trajan fell ill and died of a stroke in the city of Selinus. He was deified by the Senate and his ashes were laid to rest under Trajan’s Column. He was succeeded by his adopted son Hadrian. International Buyers – Please Note. The item “Trajan.
