Julia Domna Silver Denarius Good Fine

Julia Domna, born in Syria around 170 AD, rose to prominence as the wife of Emperor Septimius Severus and mother of Emperors Caracalla and Geta. She accompanied her husband on his expedition to Britain in 208 AD, he later died in York in 211 AD. She wielded considerable influence during the Severan dynasty, engaging in politics, patronage of the arts, and philosophical discourse. Julia was known for her intellect, charm, and ambition, acting as a key advisor to Severus and promoting the careers of favoured courtiers. Her patronage supported poets, philosophers, and artists, contributing to the cultural vibrancy of the empire. Julia’s tragic end came with the conflict between her sons, resulting in Geta’s murder and Caracalla’s subsequent reign of terror. We have a small group of denarii all in Good Fine grade. They come with a bust of Julia Domna on the obverse and various deities on the reverse.
