2 Ancient Roman Silver Coins Denarius Of Geta&CaracallaVF+bonus
Caracalla and Geta were the children and successors of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. The coins in the photos are the coins you will receive. Both coins depict these two rival brothers at a young age. Both coins have good detail and are pretty rare. The legends on the coins is legible, and the busts are excellent(The busts of these two remind me of the Gerber baby and the Coppertone kid). Caracalla eventually had Geta killed in front of their mother, Julia Domna. Coins with these two emperors are rare, but these particular Geta and Caracalla coins are even more rare Bonus: winner will receive an additional ancient silver coin free as a thank you gift. Caracalla coin: AR denarius. Obv: M AVR ANTONINVS CAES, bare-headed, draped bust right. Rev: SECVRITAS PERPETVA, Minerva standing left with spear and leaning on shield. RIC 2 var (bust type); BMCRE 181. Geta coin: The obverse of this piece a young Geta facing right, with legends. The reverse features Castor standing half-left beside horse standing left, holding sceptre. The legend reads CASTOR. Castor is one of the Dioscuri who according to legend aided the Roman armies against the Latins at the battle of Lake Regillus. The depiction of Castor alone is very uncommon in the Imperial series. Geta and Caracalla had issues from the beginning. It’s clear that Septimius Severus preferred his eldest son Caracalla over his brother Geta. Though they were less than a year apart in age, Septimius Severus raised Caracalla to the rank of Augustus in 198, but didn’t raise Geta to the same rank until 11 years later. Conversely, sources make it clear that their mother, Julia Domna, was more fond of her younger son, and Severus elevated him mostly on her insistence. The hatred the two boys held for each other was held in check while Severus was alive, So when he died while the three of them were out campaigning in Britain the boys immediately cut the campaign short and hurried back to Rome to try to undermine one another. Both brothers had their followers, and both sets of followers egged their favorite brother on, leading to progressively worse acts against each other until it the situation became untenable, and sitcom like hi-jinx followed as any attempt to hide their disgust was abandoned. The one thing they agreed upon was that they couldn’t live together, so first they divided the Imperial palace, bricking off all connecting passageways. Then they made plans to divide the empire. But their mom torpedoed this plan, asking, How are you going to divide your mother? (gotta love the motherly guilt trip). Frustrated at the demise of the plan to divide the empire, each began trying to arrange for the demise of the other. In December of 211, Caracalla finally succeeded. Not satisfied with merely killing his brother, Caracalla then ordered the execution of 20,000 people suspected of liking Geta, including Caracalla’s exiled wife. About the only person who liked his brother that he did not kill was his mother. He also ordered that all coins, statues, and other works of art featuring Geta, attempting to erase his name from history.
