CAracalla was Roman emperor from 198 AD to 217 AD. He was the son of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. In the beginning of his reign, Caracalla ruled jointly with his father, Septimius Severus, until he died in 211. Caracalla then ruled jointly with his brother, Geta. However, both brothers wanted sole reign and tensions rose. At the reconciliation meeting that their mother arranged, Caracalla had Geta assassinated by soldier loyal to him. Geta is said to have died in the arms of his mother.

When the inhabitants of Alexandria heard of Caracalla's claims that he had killed Geta in self-defense, they produced a satire mocking him. In 215, Caracalla savagely responded to this insult by slaughtering 20,000 of its citizens. He became one of the most notorius and despised emperors of the Roman Empire

The obverse of this coin features the bust of the Emperor, Caracalla, along with the inscription: "ANTONINVS PIVS AVG GERM." The reverse of this coin may vary. The Seven Hills Hoard The Seven Hills Hoard of Rome are located near the Tiber river and make up the heart of Ancient Rome. The coins that were found in this area added up to more than 7,000 and were thought to have been buried there since around 250 AD. This particular coin is a silver denarius which was the standard silver coin in Rome from 211 BC to 240 AD. One denarius was equivalent to one day's worth of pay at the time.
