Gavin Richardson Posted May 24 · Member Share Posted May 24 So I was looking through my coins and ran across this denarius of Julia Domna. I noticed two G's in the PIETAS AVGG reverse legend. Typically an additional letter pluralizes, so I read the legend as “Pietas Augustorum,” or “The Pietas of the Augusti.” But who are the Augusti? Septimius Severus and Julia Domna? Septimius Severus and one or both of his sons? To whom does this second -G refer? The dating of reigns may be relevant but not dispositive in answering the question. Septimius Severus 193–198 —with Caracalla 198–209 —with Caracalla and Geta 209–211 Caracalla and Geta 211–211 Caracalla 211–217 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
