    Description

    Geta (AD 209-211). AR denarius (21mm, 2.96 gm, 12h). Rome, AD 210-211. P SEPT GETA PIVS AVG BRIT, laureate head of Geta right / VICTORIAE BRIT, Victory standing left holding palm branch and wreath. RIC 92. RSC 219. Scarce. Well struck on a broad flan. Choice Extremely Fine.

    Geta was given a largely administrative role during the Severan invasion of northern Britain, remaining at York with his mother Julia Domna to supervise the government while Severus and Caracalla led the armies in Scotland. It was in Britain that Severus, perhaps finally realizing the mental instability of his elder son Caracalla, raised Geta to the rank of co-Augustus, thus for the first time giving the Empire three Augusti.
