Genuine Roman Silver Coin Pendant depicting Emperor Caracalla
- • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Genuine Roman Silver Coin 3rd cent. AD • Bezel material: Sterling Silver 925
In this sterling silver pendant is set an authentic roman coin with Emperor Caracalla. On the other side of the coin we can see the Salus, a representation of Health. Caracalla, formally known as Antoninus, ruled as Roman emperor from 198 to 217 AD. He was a member of the Severan dynasty, the elder son of Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. Co-ruler with his father from 198, he continued to rule with his brother Geta, emperor from 209, after their father's death in 211. His brother was murdered by the Praetorian Guard later that year, supposedly under orders from Caracalla himself, who then reigned afterward as sole ruler of the Roman Empire. He is one of the emperors who commissioned a large public bathhouse in Rome, which remains a major tourist attraction today. All of our jewels are certified by a certificate of authenticity attesting their Greek or Roman origin!
