Roman AE Ulpia Severina (AD270-275) NGC (XF)

$98.81
SKU SEVERINA(ANT)NGC

Little is definitively known about this Roman Empress, wife of the Emperor Aurelian, although she seems to have descended in some way from the Emperor Trajan. Aside from a brief listing in the Historia Augusta, there are no literary sources in which she is discussed at length. There is some numismatic evidence that she continued to reign in her own right after the death of her husband in 275, which would make her the only woman to have ruled over the entire Empire alone.
