The coin: Annia Faustina, 3rd wife of Elagabalus Mid-Late 221 AD AE23, Hierapolis, Phrygia ANNIA ΦAVCTEINA CEB, Draped bust right, wearing stephane; C/M: Venus holding apple? IEΡAΠOΛEITΩN NEΩKOΡΩN, Wreath with A-KTI-A in three lines Minted for Actian Games Annia Faustina was the great-granddaughter of Marcus Aurelius' sister, and was one of the last members of that prestigious dynasty, most of whom had been wiped out by either the Antonine Plague, or else from Caracalla's purges of suspected Geta sympathizers. She was a wealthy heiress, inheriting her parents' estates and marrying the senator Pomponius Bassus. They had two children together, Pomponia Ummidia, and Pomponius Bassus, both of whom led long and prestigious lives during the later Crisis years. In 221, her husband was killed on orders of Elagabalus, and she was forced into marrying the deranged young emperor, in a move orchestrated by Julia Maesa as damage control after the scandalous marriage to Aquilia Severa. The couple were wed in about July 221, and by the end of the year, Elagabalus decided to stand up to his grandmother, divorcing Annia Faustina and returning to Aquilia Severa. Thankfully, both Annia and her two young children were spared and allowed to return to their lives as private citizens. I couldn't resist the urge to break them all out for a big, dysfunctional family portrait! First: - Septimius Severus, as Augustus - Julia Domna, as Augusta - Clodius Albinus, as Caesar - Caracalla, as Caesar - Geta, as Caesar - Plautilla Second: - Divus Septimius Severus - Caracalla, as Augustus - Geta, as Augustus - Julia Domna, as Pia Felix Third: - Macrinus - Diadumenian Fourth: - Elagabalus - Julia Paula - Julia Aquilia Severa - Annia Faustina - Julia Soaemias - Julia Maesa Fifth: - Severus Alexander, as Caesar - Severus Alexander, as Augustus - Julia Mamaea - Orbiana That covers every title held by every member of the imperial family, except: - Divus Caracalla (Looking for one) - Diadumenian as Augustus (Looking for one) - Diva Julia Domna (Out of price range) - Diva Julia Maesa (Likely out of price range) Thanks for looking! As always, feel free to post those Annia Faustinas, Severans, or anything related!
