TRAJAN
Earliest of the Great Emperors of ROME'S GOLDEN ERA
98 to 117 AD

Historical Context: These coins were minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE during the reign of TRAJAN ( 98-117 AD). Marcus Ulpius Trajanus held several military posts and was eventually appointed governor of Upper Germany by Nerva who adopted him. On his succession, Trajan decided that the time was ripe for territorial expansion and he successfully undertook the conquest of Dacia which then became a Roman province. Trajan became emperor through his adoption by Nerva. He later adopted Hadrian as his successor. They are known as the adoptive emperors. This was the Golden Era of Rome.

ANTONIUS PIUS
The Namesake of the "Antonian Era" 
(Rome's Golden Era)
138 to 161 AD

Historical Context:  These coins were minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE during the reign of ANTONINUS PIUS (138 - 161 AD). Antoninius Pius was a senator.  He was adopted by Hadrian as his heir in 138 and his succession was smooth.  The history of his reign is minimal owing to the tranquility and prosperity which Roman world enjoyed under the patient, judicious and impartial rule.  It is said that he instructed his artists to show him with a "thoughtful" portrait so the people of Rome would feel comfortable with him. Based on the portraits on his coins, they hit their mark.  He also adopted Marcus Aurelius as his successor. They are known as the adoptive emperors. This was the Golden Era of Rome.

They are known as the adoptive emperors. This was during the Golden Era of Rome.

COMMODUS
Young Emperor from the recent movie "GLADIATOR" !!
177 to 192 AD

Historical Context:  These coins were minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE during the reign of COMMODUS A.D. 177 - 192. L. Aelius Aurelius Commodus was the son of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina Junior. He was made Augustus and co-emperor in 177. He proved a most unworthy son of a noble father. During his last years he seems to have become quite insane.  He battled gladiators and wild beasts in the amphitheater, and he believed himself the reincarnation of Hercules.  However, he cheated, giving his opponents lead swords against his iron sword.  He was eventually murdered in his bath by a Praetorian Guard..

SEPTIMUS SEVERUS
Founder of the Severan Dynasty
193 to 211 AD

Historical Context:  These coins were minted by the Roman Empire during the reign of Septimus Severus (193 - 211 AD). Sept Severus was a outstanding soldier. At the death of Commodus, he expressed his allegiance to Pertinax, but after his murder and the shameful elevation of Didius Julianus, Severus was saluted as emperor by the troops.  He led his troops to victory and became Emperor.  He founded a dynasty in Rome that lasted a number of generations. Some of the oddest people ever to rule Rome were part of this dynasty. This emperor brought onto the empire one of its most turbulent periods.  It is said that he instructed his artists to show him with lengthy beard even thought he had a short cropped beard. He thought it made him look past emperors.

CARACALLA
Started as a Cute Kid and Became a Monster
198 to 217 AD

Historical Context: These coins were minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE during the reign of CARACALLA (198-217 AD). M. Aurelius, originally named Bassianus, the elder son of Severus. In 198 was created Augustus, although only ten years of age. On the death of Severus, Caracalla reigned jointly with his brother Geta. However, he had Geta assassinated, reportedly while in the arms of his mother. His reign was marked by extravagance and cruelty. He achieved more by treachery than by force of arms. He had his portrait (as an adult) potrayed with a skowl so that the Roman people would fear him.  The one notable action attributed to him, was giving to all free inhabitants of the Empire the privileges of Roman citizens. He was part of the SEVERAN DYNASTY, which lasted a number of generations and included some of the oddest people ever to rule Rome.

CARACALLA
198 to 217 AD

Historical Context: This coin was minted by the ROMAN EMPIRE (Greek Colony) during the reign of CARACALLA (198-217 AD). M. Aurelius, originally named Bassianus, the elder son of Severus. In 198 was created Augustus, although only ten years of age. On the death of Severus, Caracalla reigned jointly with his brother Geta. However, he had Geta assassinated, reportedly while in the arms of his mother. His reign was marked by extravagance and cruelty. He achieved more by treachery than by force of arms. He had his portrait (as an adult) potrayed with a skowl so that the Roman people would fear him.  The one notable action attributed to him, was giving to all free inhabitants of the Empire the privileges of Roman citizens. He was part of the SEVERAN DYNASTY, which lasted a number of generations and included some of the oddest people ever to rule Rome.

SEVERUS ALEXANDER
A Mama's Boy that became Emperor.....
222 to 235 AD 

Historical Context:  SEVERUS ALEXANDER (222 – 235 AD) -  He was the son of Julia Mamaea and Gessius Marcianus. Through the machinations of his mother and his grandmother, Julia Maesa, Alexander became emperor. They arranged for his adoption by Elagabalus, his cousin, and given the title Caesar. After the murder of Elagabalus, he was acknowledged as Emperor. In 235, enroute to Germany to quell an uprising, Alexander and Julia Mamaea (his mother) were murdered at the camp near Mainz.  This eneded the Severan Dynasty, which was one of the strangest of dynasties to preside over Rome.
