FVNDATOR PACIS (The founder or establisher of peace). This magnificent title, accompanying the type of the emperor standing, togated and veiled, with an olive branch in his right hand, appears on the reverse of a coin of Septimius Severus (both gold and silver), struck probably after his expedition and |victory| against the Parthians. Not only his cruel son Caracalla, but even Julia Domna his wife was alowed the flattery of the same mint, which called her Mater Castrorum, to share the honour of founding peace (as usual, on the wilderness making principle of Roman policy).
