Septimius Severus Denarii


Septimius_48.jpg

My gallery of the denarii of Septimius Severus from 193 CE through to his death in 211 CE. This represents my main area of collecting interest for ancient coins, as I'm fascinated with Septimius' unprecedented success in reversing the empire's misfortunes since the death of Marcus Aurelius. The Roman Empire reached its greatest extent under his reign - over 5 million square kilometers.

Severus was also distinguished for his buildings. Apart from the triumphal arch in the Roman Forum carrying his full name, he also built the Septizodium in Rome. He enriched his native city of Leptis Magna, including commissioning a triumphal arch on the occasion of his visit of 203.

Denarii and Antoninianii of Severan-era Emperors


elagabalus_ant_edited-1.jpg

This is my gallery of the denarii and anyoninianii of the Severan-era emperors from Clodius Albinus in 193 CE onward through to Severus Alexander in 235 CE, but with the exception of Septimius Severus, to whom I've dedicated his own album. This includes Macrinus and Diadumenian who briefly usurped the throne during the Severan dynastic period. While my primary collecting focus is Septimius Severus, I have nevertheless procured at least one Denarius or antoninianus example from each contemporary emperor, along with all the women of the era represented on denarii, though the women are in a separate album.

Denarii and Antoninianii of the Severan Women


aquilia.jpg

This is my gallery of Denarii and Antoninianii bearing the obverse portrait of Severan era women of power, including the emperor's wives, mothers and grandmothers. In some cases, these women were the real power of Rome, particularly when their sons and grandsons ascended the throne at tender ages.

Silver Coinage of the Third Century Crisis


maximinus_1.jpg

Severus Alexander was assassinated on 22 March 235 CE, marking the end of the short-lived Severan Dynasty established in 193 CE. This event marked the generally accepted beginning of a period of instability known to scholars as "The Crisis of the Third Century", but also known as Military Anarchy or the Imperial Crisis (235–284 AD). During this period, the Roman Empire retreated from its zenith to nearly collapsing under the combined pressures of barbarian invasions, civil wars, political instability and myriad other factors.

This gallery looks at the silver & billon coins of this tumultuous era.

Late Empire


constantine~0.jpg

An album of miscellaneous Late Roman Bronzes. This is not a primary area of focus for me, and just includes a few coins I like, in some cases obtained from uncleaned lots. It will evolve and be better catalogued as I get caught up on posting denarii.
