Who were the Severans?
The Severan dynasty came to power in 193 after the tumultuous Year of the Five Emperors, founded by the Emperor Septimus Severus who defeated rival claimants and solidified his rule with extensive campaigning from Africa to Great Britain.
Septimus' sons by his influential wife, Julia Domna, served as co-Emperors and then ruled in their own right after his death. First Caracalla (ruled 198-217) and then Geta (209-211). All four members of the family issued diverse coinage bearing their image, as did Elagabalus (218-222) and Severus Alexander (222-235): the more distant relatives who succeeded them.
The Severans are remembered for their fractious interpersonal relationships and the political turmoil that endured throughout their rule.
What are silver Denari?
Silver Denari (the plural of Denarius) were the standard Roman silver coin, used across the Empire from the time of the Second Punic Wars in the late third century BC. By the time fo the Severan dynasty a single Denarius was worth 16 Asses (a smaller bronze coin). 20 Denari might buy a quality pair of army boots.
The Denarius was replaced by the Antoninianus, introduced in the early third century. These Severan Denari are among the last issued in silver though the coin was later struck in bronze.
