Caracalla, silver Denarius, Victory in Britain.

Caracalla (AD 198-217), silver Denarius, Rome, AD 210-13, ANTONINVS PIVS AVG. BRIT, laureate head right, rev. VICTORIAE BRIT, Victory advancing left, holding wreath and palm frond, 3.39g, 7h (RIC 231). Extremely fine.

Augustus Britannicus is a title reflecting Caracalla's presence in Britain during his father's campaigns here, whil the reverse type celebrate Roman victory over Britain.

In AD 208, Septimius Severus arrived with his sons Caracalla and Geta, and an army of perhaps 40,000 soldiers intent on quelling rebellion in Caledonia. His victory was short-lived though and soon after his death in York, in AD 211, his sons sought a political solution to the fighting and returned to Rome. The empire's frontier was ultimately withdrawn to Hadrian's Wall and Romans would never again embark on a significant campaign into Scotland.
