Commentary


.
Durant la 25e émission, trois types de revers furent utilisés par une même officine pour le monnayage de Géta César. La légende de revers présente deux titres importants du jeune césar : son premier consulat, réalisé en 206, et sa qualité de pontife, comme Caracalla. Leur père, Septime Sévère, est le grand pontife ('Pontifex Maximus').

Historical background


Geta

(06/198-26/02/212) Lucius puis Publius Septimius Geta

Geta, born May 26, 189, became Caesar in 198 and the following year received the title of Pontifex. He accompanied his father and brother in Britain from 208 and amounted to Augustat the following year. When Septimius Severus died at York on 4 February 211, the brothers bring the ashes of their father to Rome and became co-emperors. But they hate.
