Now, here is the item that you came for. 198-217 AD Caracalla AR Denarius NGC XF Extremely Fine. Caracalla was not born to be emperor. Born in AD 188 in the city of Lugdunum in southern Gaul (modern Lyon), the young man's ancestry was a testament to the cosmopolitanism of the Roman Empire in the late second century. His father, Septimius Severus, was from the port city of Leptis Magna (modern Libya), whilst his mother, Julia Domna, was from a family of aristocratic priests of the god Elagabal in the Syrian city of Emesa (modern Homs).
Later, the senatorial historian Cassius Dio, no great fan of Caracalla's approach to ruling the empire, would blame this ancestry for the Roman emperor's character flaws: the fickleness, cowardice and recklessness of Gaul. The harshness and cruelty of Africa, and the craftiness of Syria.Please take a look at the photos. Please feel free to send us a message any time.
