Description
A complex and fascinating personality, Caracalla reigned in the waning years of Rome’s golden age. A member of the powerful Severan dynasty, he is most famous today for the elaborate baths he built in Rome itself. Caracalla's proud, arrogant image makes a strong impression on this silver coin. Such a token seems to epitomize the glory and grandeur that was Rome. Those who first held it were witness to history; those who wear it today will create a little history on their own. This ancient coin was found in Emessa, Syria and has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold pendant. - (FJ.4762)
