Damnatio Memoriae
Caracalla [and Geta], 198 - 212 A.D., Stratonicea, Caria, Damnatio Memoriae

|Damnatio| |Memoriae|, |Caracalla| |[and| |Geta],| |198| |-| |212| |A.D.,| |Stratonicea,| |Caria,| |Damnatio| |Memoriae||AE| |39|
After Geta's murder, Caracalla damned his memory, Damnatio Memoriae, requiring the destruction of every reference to his younger brother. Both Geta's portrait and legend were intentionally erased from this coin. The countermark shows an older Caracalla.

|Caligula|, |Caligula,| |16| |March| |37| |-| |24| |January| |41| |A.D.||sestertius|
It appears that, in accordance with his damnatio, the identity of Caligula was removed in the legend through the effacement of the first C and perhaps additional letters. To "improve" the coin, the letter was re-engraved in modern times (19th c.?).
