He was called Lucius from his father, and took the name of Publius from his uncle, a Roman knight.  In 951 (C.E. 197), Severus having assumed the sole authority on the removal of his rivals, Geta followed his father to join the Parthian campaign in the East, where he declined to accept the title of Caesar, though pressed upon him by the army, approved by the Senate and the Emperor, and though at the same time his brother Caracalla was already styled Augustus. But he recieved the titles of Princeps Juventutis and of Pontifex.
