Say what you will about his negatives, and there's plenty to say, but this guy didn't just run the empire. It was a better and safer place then when he'd taken over... Until he died, that is. The legacy he left behind would've been incredible had Geta gotten to Caracalla first. (Classic tondo showcasing a straight up Geta damnation) Instead, a conversation about the man consists of how he took the world by sheer will and force alone, how awesome his wife was and thenhow awful his son was. Ol' Septy, as he would have us call him, consolidated and dominated. And yet despite his son issuing one if the largest citizenship rights decrees of all time, due to his utter lunacy, his sons reputation in many ways has tarnished his reputation. Enough said about that. Here's to the man. The man that headed Pesky Niger off at the pass and con'd Albinus into complacency. A wife so nice her coins portray Venus and friends... From some pretty fun angles: Those rascaly sons And of course, the man of the hour himself on his death date... Sheptimius Severus!!! I know you all have some amazing coins of the man and his fam. Please share your favorite Sheptimius Shevs and co, favorite stories or whatever enriches your soldiers!
