Severina, Augusta Spring 274 - November 275 A.D., Wife of Aurelian
|Severina|, |Severina,| |Augusta| |Spring| |274| |-| |November| |275| |A.D.,| |Wife| |of| |Aurelian|, There is considerable numismatic evidence Severina ruled in her own right between the death of Aurelian and the election of Tacitus. Sources mention an interregnum, and some of Severina's coins, including this type, appear to have been minted after Aurelian's death. She may have been the only woman to rule over the whole Roman Empire in her own power. The reverse advertises her good relations with the army, an unusual reverse for an empress, and perhaps an indication of her role as sole ruler.
