Geta, 209 - c. 26 December 211 A.D.

Publius Septimius Geta was the younger son of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. No love was lost between him and his older brother Caracalla, and although at their father's deathbed they pledged to remain united, within months each had their own rival factions and vied with each for supremacy. Pretending reconciliation, Caracalla scheduled a meeting at their mother's house where instead Geta was ambushed and murdered. Geta died in his mother's arms.

At the beginning of the third century, Ephesus asked to build temples to Caracalla and Geta, brother-emperors and sworn enemies. Both agreed, but on separate temples. Caracalla allowed the honor of his to go to Ephesus' patron goddess Artemis. A new temple was to be built for Geta, but after Caracalla killed Geta any sign of worship for the dead brother was eradicated.
