Septimius Severus was Roman Emperor from AD 193-211. In AD 208 he travelled to
Britain to strengthen Hadrian’s Wall and went on to invade Scotland that same year but
his plans were cut short when he became ill and died in York in AD 211.
We have recently bought a nice group of his silver denarius in Very Fine Condition. There
are different types but all have his portrait on the obverse and usually a standing or seated figure
on the reverse.
