    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.
