Seller's Note/ * Of historical importance, this issue was struck just a few months after Elagabalus, at the age of 18, and his mother Julia Soaemias, were assassinated by the Praetorian Guard in March, 222 AD. The image of Mars on the reverse, holding a branch and reversed spear, alludes to the return of tranquility to the Empire after the death of the loony Elagabalus.
