208 AD Caracalla AR Denarius (Ch-VF NGC) VOTA SOLVT DEC COS III Silver RIC-204

  • 208 AD Roman Empire AR Denarius Coin
  • Issued under the rule of Caracalla (Antoninus), the 21st Emperor of the Roman Empire (198-217 AD)

The eldest son of Septimius Severus, Caracalla reigned jointly with his father from 198 until Severus' death in 211. For a short time he then ruled jointly with his younger brother Geta until he had him murdered later in 211. Caracalla is remembered as one of the most notorious and unpleasant of emperors because of the massacres and persecutions he authorized and instigated throughout the Empire. Caracalla's reign was also notable for the Constitutio Antoniniana, granting Roman citizenship to all freemen throughout the Roman Empire.
