History of the Artifact

Emperor Septimius Severus, born on April 11, 145, in Leptis Magna (modern-day Libya), was a distinguished Roman emperor who reigned from 193 to 211 AD. He hailed from a wealthy and influential Punic family, and his rise to power marked a significant moment in Roman history, bringing about a transition in the imperial structure and administrative strategies. Severus was a seasoned military commander and provincial governor before his ascension to the throne. His path to power was characterized by political acumen and military prowess, especially during the Year of the Five Emperors in 193 AD, a period marked by political chaos and civil war. After the assassination of Emperor Pertinax, Severus was proclaimed emperor by his legions in Pannonia, and he swiftly marched on Rome, overcoming rival claimants such as Didius Julianus, Pescennius Niger, and Clodius Albinus to secure his position.

As emperor, Septimius Severus implemented several significant reforms that left a lasting impact on the Roman Empire. He reorganized the Roman military, increasing the number of legions and boosting soldiers' pay and privileges, thereby ensuring their loyalty. Severus also undertook extensive legal reforms, consolidating Roman law and enhancing the role of jurists, which contributed to a more systematic and coherent legal framework. His reign saw significant architectural and infrastructural projects, particularly in his hometown of Leptis Magna, which he transformed into a major urban center adorned with grandiose public buildings, monuments, and an expanded harbor, showcasing the emperor's commitment to his provincial roots and his desire to leave a lasting legacy.

I ordered this coin for my grandson, he loves anything Roman history and was thrilled. I didn’t receive the authentic certificate with it, I contacted the seller and asked if he could send one out to him. He responded right away and is sending it right out. I would recommend to everyone. Very good customer service and arrived early.
