17. An Aureus from Lucius Septimius Severus. He was born in Libya and reined from 193 until 211. During this time new regulations for the army were mainly introduced. For the first time soldiers were allowed to get married during their period of service. Besides that, Septimius Severus rewarded his loyal troops very generously. He combated bribery successfully and thus cared for a general ease in the empire which also made him extremely popular with the population. He died in 211. His last words to his sons is said to be as follows: „Unite, enrich the soldiers and despise all others!“ The triumphal arch which was constructed by him is still on the Roman Forum to this very day.
