The Severans were Emperors who ruled over Rome during a period that many writers believed to be one of the happiest in history. Septimus Severus was one such caesar who sought a wife for himself. He searched for his destined partner through the horoscopes of noblewomen of the region, and found Julia Domna who, it was told, was destined to marry a king, and whose father was the high priest of the cult of the sun God. The marriage was a happy one, with Septimus never failing to seek Julia’s counsel on all important domestic and political matters. She was well read in literature and philosophy, and gained a “splendid reputation”. During this time, multi-coin adornments of this particular type emerged, and the Severan Necklace pays homage to that ancient style.
