This ancient Roman silver denarius coin is over 1,800 years old, and dates from the reign of the Emperor Septimius Severus, who ruled from 193 to 211, CE. The coin is in superb museum quality "about as struck" uncirculated condition, with sharp detail and a very attractive appearance. The denarius was the primary currency unit of Ancient Rome during this era, and would have been widely accepted as payment for goods and services throughout the empire. It is fascinating to think of who may have held this coin, and what may have once been purchased with it. The coin comes in a custom case accompanied by an information page and certificate of authenticity.

The obverse of the coin features a splendid portrait of the Emperor Septimius Severus, his curly hair and forked beard betraying his African heritage. On the reverse is the likeness of one of the many gods and goddesses of the Roman pantheon.                

Septimuis Severus
He was born in the Roman settlement at Leptis Magna in Africa in C.E. 146. He proved himself as an outstanding soldier in the Roman army, and a ferocious warrior on the battlefield. Following the murder of the Emperor Pertinax in C.E. 193, Septimius' troops proclaimed him Emperor. Septimius spent his reign personally overseeing the Roman military campaigns throughout the Empire, including visiting Britain in C.E. 208 after a great invasion by Scottish barbarians in C.E. 197.  But the strains of these campaigns proved too much for the old Emperor, and he died at Eburacum (York, England) on February 4th, C.E. 211.
