    The Severan Parthian campaign ended in AD 198 with the capture of the capital, Ctesiphon. Septimius was named imperator for the eleventh time and received the title Parthicus Maximus and elevated to co-augustus, his son, Caracalla, who had campaigned with him. A series of coinage was issued over the next few years, celebrating the victory with reverse types and legends which include references to Parthica in various forms. A triumphal arch was also erected in Rome in AD 203.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
