    Description

    Caracalla. A.D. 198-217. AE sestertius (30 mm, 22.23 g). British Victory issue. Rome, A.D. 211. Laureate bust right, slight drapery on far shoulder / Victory standing right, erecting trophy; woman standing facing, captive at her feet, on right. Cf. RIC 464 and 483. Good VF, dark green-black surfaces, a little porous. The reverse type celebrates Septimius Severus' military campaigns in northern Britain against the Picts and the Scots. However, with Septimius' death at York in 211, and due to the quarrels between his two sons, Caracalla and Geta, the military action was not settled, leaving Britain unstable and barely protected.
