We have sourced a small number of original Ancient coins from one of the Roman Empires most infamous rulers, Emperor Caracalla
When his Father Severus died during his British campaign, a power struggle ensued between Caracalla and his brother Geta. Their mother Julia tried in vain to broker peace between the sibling rivals but to no avail. Caracalla killed Geta, it is said whilst in the arms of their mother, but this wasn’t the end of Caracalla’s brutality as he then ordered the death of many of the men loyal to his brother to ensure there would be no retribution for his grisly act of fratricide.
